Bengals trade Marquis Flowers to Patriots for seventh-round pick

With four days to go before final roster cuts, the Bengals and Patriots have made a move. Cincinnati sent linebacker Marquis Flowers to the Patriots for a seventh-round draft pick, the Enquirer reports. The move likely means the Bengals didn’t plan to keep Flowers on their 53-man roster, and that the Patriots liked him and thought some other team would claim him on waivers before they could get him.
