There will not be a return to New England for Danny Amendola.

In reacting to the Flower news, NBC's Peter King proposed a new rule that the National Football League might have no other choice but to incorporate in wake of recent events.

The fourth-year general manager of the Detroit Lions followed two middle-of-the-pack free-agent signings on Monday with a whopper in the afternoon: former New England Patriots defensive end Trey Flowers, widely considered the best player available.

LeBron hasn't missed the playoffs since the 2004-2005 season, but seems resigned to his fate this year. He now trails only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 points), Karl Malone (36,928) and Kobe Bryant (33,643).

The Detroit Lions have closed in on a contract with Justin Coleman that will pay him $36 million over four years and make him the highest-paid nickel cornerback in the NFL. The deal is rumored to be a five-year deal worth anywhere between $16-$17 million per season. The 25-year old pass rusher figured to be the Lions' top free agent target with the career of defensive end Ezekiel Ansah in Motown likely coming to an end. The Patriots' best offer hasn't been disclosed, but a source close to Flowers said the Lions' deal was significantly superior. He also started the last three Super Bowls for the Pats, winning two.

Update: reporter Ian Rapoport checks in with an update on the details of the deal.

Deals can not become official until the start of the new league year, at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
