Last year, Flowers credited Patricia for his development as a player, telling the Free Press at the Super Bowl, "I just want to thank Coach Patricia for everything he’s done for me." Flowers appeared to be on the outs this summer with the Patriots, who tweaked their defensive scheme after Patricia left to take the Lions job in February.
