AP Source: Patriots sign Bills RB Gillislee to offer sheet

If the Bills decline to match Gillislee's offer, it is unlikely the Patriots will re-sign free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount, who led the National Football League with 18 rushing touchdowns, which was the highest total in the National Football League since Adrian Peterson had 18 in 2009. This time, the Bills have to choose whether to match the two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet the Patriots gave Gillislee or decline to match and get a fifth-round pick from New England.
If the Bills do not match the Patriots' offer sheet for the 26-year old, New England would have to send its fifth round pick in next week's draft (selection number 163) to Buffalo as compensation.
The New England Patriots and LeGarrette Blount might have reached a point of no return.
The Patriots would have Gillislee and Rex Burkhead signed for over $3 million each and Dion Lewis and James White under contract for one more season apiece.
Signing Gillislee to an offer sheet likely indicates the Patriots are not looking to bring back LaGarrette Blount, who is now a free agent. And just last month, they poached the Bills No. 1 cornerback, Stephon Gilmore, with a blockbuster contract offer. Gillislee runs with ferocity and power, as he averages 5.6 yards per carry.
Last month, Buffalo retained offensive lineman Ryan Groy by matching the offer sheet he signed with the Los Angeles Rams.
If the Bills lose Gillislee, they will end up with a need at running back. Belichick is going to take Gillislee, another nameless player off a bad team, and put him in the best situation for him to find his own path to superstardom.
Gillislee finished the 2016 season with 627 total yards and 9 touchdowns while posting 0.30 net expected points per rush - ranking him first overall out of the 42 running backs with at least 100 carries. He won two Super Bowls in New England, and twice revitalized his career after his time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Pittsburgh Steelers prematurely ended.
