The Patriots have agreed to sign restricted free agent, RB Mike Gillislee to an offer sheet. Gillislee 26, is 5'11" 219 lbs. and played his College ball at the University of Florida.
The offer sheet is for 2 years,& $6.4 mil. with $4 mil. in 2017.
The Buffalo Bills have 5 days to match the Patriots offer. If the Bills decline to match the contract offer, the Bills get the Patriots 5th round draft pick, #163 over-all.
The Bill's Cap Space is limited, as they had offered Gillislee 1 year $1.7 mil.
This comes a year after the Patriots signed restricted free agent WR Chris Hogan from the Bills.
My guess is the Bills will NOT match the Patriots contract offer, and this will likely end free agent, LaGarrette Blount 30, chance to resign with the Patriots.
