  • Marquis Flowers: Cut by Washington

    The Redskins released Flowers on Saturday, per the NFL transactions page.

    Flowers sustained an Achilles strain in Washington's third preseason contest Aug. 22, but he was able to recover in time for their preseason finale. The 27-year-old originally signed with the Redskins in late December, but now he'll have to find another opportunity elsewhere.

  • Redskins' Marquis Flowers: Out with Achilles strain

    Flowers has been ruled out for the rest of Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons due to an Achilles strain.

    Flowers was in the process of competing for a depth role at linebacker, though this injury certainly won't help his chances of making the 53-man roster. It's unclear if he'll be ready to play in the final week of the preseason against Baltimore.

  • Marquis Flowers: Released by New England

    Flowers was released by the Patriots on Saturday, Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports.

    Flowers' release comes as a bit of a surprise after he logged 490 snaps on defense and special teams combined a year ago, logging 32 tackles that included 3.5 sacks. He'll look to catch on with another club in 2018 as a depth linebacker.

  • Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Returning to New England

    Flowers will return to the Patriots on a one-year deal worth up to $2.55 million, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Flowers didn't see many defensive snaps early in the year for New England, but was a key player down the stretch of the season. Over the last two games of the year, the former Cincinnati Bengal accumulated 14 combined tackles and 3.5 sacks, then added four tackles and a sack in the Patriots' first playoff matchup against Tennessee. That window opened up due to a calf injury suffered by starter Kyle Van Noy, who should resume his regular role in 2018. Flowers appears likely to return to his role as a depth option, though he'll get plenty of work on special teams as well.

  • Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Has monster game Sunday

    Flowers tallied 10 tackles (five solo) and 2.5 sacks in Sunday's 37-16 defeat of the Bills.

    Flowers took full advantage of Kyle Van Noy's absence, racking up more tackles in the contest than he'd amassed in any single season prior to 2017. The sacks were also the first of his career. He'll be an appealing IDP option in Week 17 against the Jets if Van Noy is sidelined once more.
