Marquis Flowers: Cut by Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers was cut by the Lions in October and has finally found his way to an active roster. He'll likely work in a special teams role again since he's behind both Ryan Kerrigan and Pernell McPhee on the defensive depth chart.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers was cut by the Lions on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Flowers was the victim of Detroit looking to add depth to its ailing secondary. Flowers has yet to make any tangible impact this season, but the 26-year-old did record two starts and 32 tackles for the Patriots last season.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers signed a contract with the Lions, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.

Marquis Flowers: Released by New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Has monster game Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Questionable for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Dolphins, Doug Kyed of reports.

Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Limited participant Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers practiced in a limited fashion Wednesday due to a knee injury.

If Flowers is able to suit up Sunday against the Bills, he could be in store for a sizable workload since fellow linebacker Kyle Van Noy is dealing with a calf issue. Flowers has been used sparingly on defense this season, resulting him accruing no more than four tackles in any of the Patriots' 11 games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patriots' Marquis Flowers: Traded to Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flowers was traded to the Patriots on Tuesday for a seventh-round pick, Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Flowers is coming off a 2016 campaign with the Bengals where he appeared in all 16 games but mostly as a member of special teams. In New England, he'll likely serve a similar role as a depth option on defense and key member of the special teams unit.
