Bills decline to match Patriots' offer for RB Gillislee
25 April 2017, 12:58 | Kristine Mills
Bills declined to match RB Mike Gillislee's two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet, making Gillislee a New England Patriot. Because Gillislee was a restricted free agent with an original-round tender, the Patriots will give the Bills the earlier of their pair of fifth-round draft picks (No. 163 overall).
Unlike the Hogan situation, the Bills will actually get compensation for declining to match the offer sheet to Gillislee.
Had the Patriots not been able to acquire Gillislee, the team would have been in the market to draft a running back.
In addition to the two-year deal, the Patriots must also part with a fifth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.
