Patriots keep Marquis Flowers

Marquis Flowers is a big fan of the Patriot Way, and he’ll stay in New England for at least another year.

Flowers, a free agent linebacker, has signed a one-year contract extension with the Patriots, his agent told Adam Schefter.

The 26-year-old Flowers was traded to New England last year after previously playing in Cincinnati. The Bengals selected him in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL draft.

Flowers spoke up last month when Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson said the players in New England play in fear, while the players in Philadelphia have more fun. Flowers said Johnson was wrong, saying he loves playing for Bill Belichick and wants to play for a coach who knows how to win.

Now Flowers will spend another year playing for that coach.

  1. This is the first bit of good news from this off-season. Losses have not been replaced with additions. The Pats are not looking like an SB contender at this point.

    I don’t think Vegas shares your opinion……

    No one wanted him

    This article is about Marquis Flowers not Andrew Luck…

  4. Dinozzo27 and Vegas had the patriots favored by 6 in the Superbowl, shows how much they know

  5. Very underrated signing. Flowers is an excellent special teams player, but he showed some signs of the possibility he can have a key role in the regular defense as well.

    No one is going to include the Pats in any “they won the offseason” list”, but they are quietly building a team that will be very competitive next season…..as always. 😉

  6. Brady, Edelman, Hightower, Slater, Chung, Gronk, etc
    they have always been a contender
    only so many dollars to go around and still the will be one of the favourites to win it all

  7. Great news. Patriots officially agree to give up a touchdown on every drive. Doubt very seriously that old Tom Cheeto Brady will be able to keep up.

    This is Bill’s and Tommy’s last year. The ship is sinking 8-8 next year

    OMG….Must have been rough the last 17 years watching them dominate the NFL….Oh, well, there’s always Andrew Luck sitting out another season, after your Colts ruined him mentally as well as physically

  9. I’m happy with the Pats off season so far. They either couldn’t or didn’t want to keep the guys they lost at the money they got paid. Edelman and Hightower, as well as many young players, will be back from IR. They’ll be S Bowl contenders again as long as a few things happen. They find a viable replacement for Solder, who I would not have made the highest pd OLineman in FB, and Brady and Gronk hearts are still in playing FB.

    Even if that were to happen it’d still be better than the colts record bahahaha.

  11. Do not upset the poor Patriot fans. Getting smoked by a backup quarterback in the Super Bowl is something their fragile egos will never get over.
