According to The Athletic's Connor Hughes, Flowers shortened his list to the Lions and Dolphins before ultimately choosing Detroit.
The deal is reportedly for five years and worth more than $16-$17 million annually.
Flowers slides perfectly into Detroit's D, as Patricia was the 25-year-old's defensive coordinator for his first three seasons. Brown has started 51 games for the Patriots over the last four seasons, and he's a plus run defender. Ideally, general manager Mike Maccagnan would like to add a pass rushers in both free agency and via the draft, though.

Coming off an impressive title win in Acapulco, Kyrgios went down to German veteran Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-4 6-4. He couldn't muster a match point and double-faulted on break point and that was enough of a window for Nishikori.
And as much as Patricia and Quinn helped to draw Amendola to Detroit, he sounded excited about catching passes from Matthew Stafford.
The Detroit Lions were very active Monday, and it wasn't hard to notice a theme among the players they reportedly agreed to contracts with.
The Lions have been one of the league's busiest teams on Monday as they have signed or reached agreements with wide receiver Danny Amendola, defensive end Trey Flowers, cornerback Justin Coleman and tight end Jesse James. The Dolphins saved $6 million in salary-cap space by releasing Amendola, who signed a two-year deal last March for $12 million. Prior to that, he played five seasons with the Patriots and was a member of two Super Bowl championship teams.
