ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Trey Flowers signed with the Lions for $90 million.
The former Patriots defensive end reunites with Matt Patricia, too.
He had his reasons for leaving behind the championship environment in New England. His six-year-old daughter wasn't as crazy about leaving the Patriots for the Lions, but she came around.
"She understands that I'm probably gonna be able to buy a little more McDonald's, so she's all good," Flowers laughed.
