Bills decline to match, Gillislee now a Patriot-- Mon Apr 24 6:00 pm --
Bills will receive 5th round pick
Bills declined to match two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet that RB Mike Gillislee signed with Patriots, per source. Gillislee now a Pat.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:This marks the second straight year the Patriots have pried away a player Buffalo. You may recall Chris Hogan joining New England from the Bills last season. With Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead and third-down back James White already on the roster, the addition of Gillislee will muddy the fantasy waters in the Patriots backfield.
Pats offer RB Mike Gillislee two-year deal -- Tue Apr 18 2:35 pm --
FF Today's Take:Gillislee is a restricted free agent so the Bills have five days to match the offer and keep their running back. If not, the Patriots would have to compensate Buffalo with a fifth-round draft pick. The Pats will have a crowded backfield if they land Gillislee with Dion Lewis, James White and Rex Burkhead already on the roster. This Pats RB corps is shaping up to be a fantasy nightmare.
