Cooper-USA TODAY SportsAlmost two months ago, on March 13, the NFL’s 2019 league year and free agency period began — and it was a busy one for the New England Patriots. Not only did the team lose some of its core players from years past headlined by standout defensive edge Trey Flowers and starting left tackle Trent Brown, it also brought in a total of eleven outside players through the open market.All in all, though, the free agency balance is once again a negative one for the Patriots. This, in turn, leads to the team being projected to earn multiple compensatory picks in next year’s draft. According to Over The Cap Youth Kevin Faulk Jerseys , New England is currently projected to gain the maximum four selections for its net free agency losses — as was the case after 2018’s free agency:OverTheCap.comWhile compensatory selections will not get announced by the NFL until next February, the final tally is ultimately expected to look similar to the projection above. And if it actually did, New England would enter the 2020 draft with a total of thirteen selections — five of which in the first three rounds (one first-rounder, one second-rounder, three third-rounders).Remaining Patriots free agentsRB Jeremy HillWR Cody HollisterLB Ramon HumberOT Ulrick JohnLB Albert McClellanDT Danny SheltonToday, the Patriots will get one step closer to securing four extra selections in next year’s draft as the NFL’s free agency compensation window closes: any players still on the open market — among them five players who were under contract in New England through last year — can now be signed without having an impact on a team’s compensatory chart.There is one exception, though, as teams do have the option of placing a rather seldom-used tender sheet on a free agent today:New England did this with running back LeGarrette Blount back in 2017 and therefore prolonged his counting against the compensation formula for another two months. The gamble paid off for the Patriots, as Blount ultimately signed a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles that factored in this year’s compensatory formula. Don’t expect anything like that to happen this year, though.The next date to take a look at when it comes to compensatory draft picks is therefore week ten of the regular season: if a team releases a free agency pickup before that deadline Kevin Faulk Jerseys Stitched , he would no longer count against the formula — potentially altering the picture once again. However, it would be rather surprising if one of the ex-Patriots signed in this year’s free agency was let go again this early into his tenure with a new club.It is a fluid process, as can be seen, but one that is expected to result in considerable return for the Patriots next year. And one that also allows the club to pick up free agents starting today that will not alter said return. It would therefore be no surprise if players like offensive tackle Jared Veldheer or defensive lineman Allen Bailey — both of whom visited New England at one point this offseason — were brought aboard soon. CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns have shaken Bill Belichick’s coaching tree before with mixed results.Maybe Brian Flores can change that.Flores, who has called New England’s defense this season for Belichick, became the fifth candidate to interview for Cleveland’s coaching vacancy — one of eight openings across the NFL. Browns general manager John Dorsey and members of the team’s search committee traveled to Boston on Saturday and met with Flores, who has worked in personnel for the Patriots and coached several position groups for Belichick.The meeting with the Browns came after the 37-year-old Flores interviewed with Denver’s group headed by president of football operations John Elway. Flores is also a candidate in Miami and Green Bay.Previous Cleveland regimes have attempted to find a long-term answer at coach by hiring Belichick protégés. Romeo Crennel spent four seasons with the Browns while Eric Mangini was fired after two.Flores has done it all with the Patriots, helping to evaluate personnel before working as an offensive, defensive and special teams assistant.“He is a very highly qualified young man,” Dorsey said earlier this week.The son of immigrants from Honduras Youth Andre Tippett Jerseys , Flores grew up in the rough Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York. His strong academic background helped him escape the tough streets and he went on to play linebacker at Boston College. He joined the Patriots in 2004 as a scouting assistant and served numerous roles before Belichick added him to his staff in 2008. He coached safeties for four years and he’s in his third coaching linebackers.Flores took over defensive play-calling duties this season after former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia was hired by Detroit.He’s the fifth candidate — and second with a mostly defensive background — to meet with Dorsey, who has kept his coaching search well-guarded as the Browns look to build on the biggest turnaround season in club history. Despite a midseason coaching change, Cleveland went 7-8-1 after a winless 2017.Dorsey has already interviewed Browns interim coach Gregg Williams, former Indianapolis and Detroit coach Jim Caldwell, Minnesota interim offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski and New Orleans tight ends coach Dan Campbell.He’s expected to meet with Browns interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens and former Packers coach Mike McCarthy sometime next week. ESPN reported Dorsey will interview Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus on Sunday.
