Miami Dolphins to Work Out Super Bowl Champion Pass Rusher

The Miami Dolphins are looking to bolster their pass rush ahead of the 2022 regular season. The team is working out former Detroit Lion and New England Patriot Trey Flowers, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports:
Flowers rose to prominence with the Patriots as a key defensive lineman during their 2016, 2017, and 2018 seasons, a period in which the team made three consecutive Super Bowl appearances, winning two. He led the team in sacks in each of those three years, adding another 5.5 across 9 postseason games. He then joined former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia on the Detroit Lions, signing a massive five-year, $90 million dollar deal in the early days of the 2019 free agency period.

Flowers never quite lived up to that contract in Detroit, and was released following the 2021 season, the year after the Lions had parted with Patricia. A reliable, steady veteran, Flowers never quite reached star status in the league, peaking with 7.5 sacks in 2018, but at only 29 years old, it's possible he could still prove a valuable contributor to the Dolphins. Needless to say, he knows the division rival Patriots well.
