Trey Flowers, Miami Dolphins, Agree to Contract

Trey Flowers is coming off of an injury-plagued season that limited him to just seven games. The former fourth-round pick still managed to make an impact while on the field, as he recorded 1.5 sacks, 24 tackles, one tackle for loss, one quarterback hit, and one forced fumble. His 63.2 PFF grade ranked 64th out of 107 eligible players.

2020 was more of the same for Flowers, as injuries limited the edge defender to just seven games. While on the field, Flowers recorded two sacks, 22 tackles, three tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, and two forced fumbles. In his last full season of health (2019), Flowers recorded seven sacks, 51 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 21 quarterback hits, and two forced fumbles.

Flowers originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Selected by the New England Patriots, the Arkansas product immediately made a splash in the preseason. However, injuries limited the rookie to just a single game of action. He didn’t record a single official statistic. However, Flowers returned healthy in 2016 and proved that he was one the biggest steals of the 2015 draft class.

Taking the place of Chandler Jones, Flowers proved he was a viable starter during New England’s Super Bowl campaign. During the regular season, the second-year pro recorded seven sacks, 45 tackles, eight tackles for loss, 14 quarterback hits, and two fumble recoveries. He ended his season on a high note, as he recorded 2.5 sacks in Super Bowl LI, playing a crucial role in New England’s 34-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

Throughout the course of his career, Flowers has recorded 31.5 sacks, 261 tackles, 37 tackles for loss, 86 quarterback hits, and 10 forced fumbles.
