Trey Flowers Thanks New England Following Signing With LionsDavid Butler II - USA TODAY Sports

Trey Flowers tenure as a New England Patriot came to an end on Monday.

The 2015 fourth round draft pick out of the University of Arkansas agreed to a five-year, $90 million contract with the Detroit Lions.

The signing reunites Flowers with his former defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.

Flowers played an integral role on defense during the Patriots run to three consecutive Super Bowls and two championships.

In 46 career regular season games, Flowers logged 21 sacks and 164 total tackles.

Over nine career playoff games, Flowers tallied 5 1/2 sacks and 39 total tackles.

“For the memories, for the lessons, for the relationships…for the opportunity..I thank you!! #ForeverGrateful”, Flowers wrote below a photograph from the Championship parade.

A few teammates tweeted out some congratulatory messages when the news broke.
