Report: Former Arkansas DL Trey Flowers to sign big deal with new NFL squad
Former Arkansas DL Trey Flowers hit the jackpot when he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He ended up with the New England Patriots, and in the first four years of his career, he’s won two Super Bowl rings.
Now, he’s getting paid. According to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions are expected to sign the former Razorback to a 5-year contract:

In four years, Flowers has played in 46 games, making 37 starts. He’s recorded 164 tackles and 21 sacks and has five forced fumbles on his resume.
He likely won’t be heading to the Super Bowl every year with the Lions, but he may see his role expanded with his new team (playing for former New England DC Matt Patricia).
