Lions put Trey Flowers on PUP list

AP

The Lions made Trey Flowers the centerpiece of their offseason, signing the former Patriots outside linebacker to a five-year, $90 million contract.

He won’t be ready for the start of training camp, as the team announced he was on the active/physically unable to perform list.

Players can be activated from PUP list at any time.

Flowers had what was termed a minor shoulder procedure after the Super Bowl, but there was no indication it would be a long-term issue.

The Lions also announced a number of roster moves, including the addition of tight end Austin Traylor. He played in the AAF, and was on the Broncos practice squad and active roster in 2017. He also spent time with the Cowboys, Chargers, Patriots and Ravens in 2016.

They activated four players from the active/non-football injury list: Defensive tackle John Atkins, defensive end Austin Bryant, defensive tackle P.J. Johnson, and tackle Ryan Pope. They also activated wide receiver Chris Lacy from the active-PUP list, and placed linebacker Steve Longa on the PUP.

  1. Invested 90 million dollars on a guy and a few days before training camp it turns out his “minor” procedure wasn’t that minor after all? Interesting.

  2. This seems to happen to nearly every Pats player that goes to a new team and get’s paid being money.

  3. Based on his play in the playoffs you would have never guessed he would need a minor shoulder procedure after the Super Bowl. The dude was dominent and I though just once BB might do the unthinkable and sign him to big bucks.

  4. Don’t worry – if, as predicted, the Lions go 3-13 and we clean house (or at least fire Patricia) all these former Patriots will be free to return there to win the Super Bowl again in 2021. All we’ve done the past couple years is snatch up anybody with a Patriots pedigree. It better work out.

    LoL! 3-13 definitely sounds correct. Only if we had a young QB like Trubisky to lead this team to victory! Stafford is a turnover machine, particularly during a critical game! My Lions won’t compete again for at least three years – same cycle of the coaches in Detroit!

  6. How the hell is Trey Flowers an “Outside Linebacker”. No way Patricia is going to stand him up in a 4-3 scheme…will he?
