One follow-up note on the Patriots surrendering a fifth-round draft pick to Buffalo for restricted free-agent running back Mike Gillislee: The selection going to Buffalo is No. 163 overall, which the Patriots had acquired from Denver last year in a trade for TE AJ Derby. So this is basically a Gillislee for Derby trade.

With the Bills declining to match the Patriots' two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet to running back Mike Gillislee, this means the Patriots now have Gillislee, James White, Dion Lewis, Rex Burkhead, D.J. Foster and Brandon Bolden at running back. It's a crowded stable and likely means the door is closed on LeGarrette Blount's return.

The Bills have declined to match the Patriots' two-year, $6.4 million offer sheet to restricted free agent RB Mike Gillislee, source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. That means Bills are down to LeSean McCoy, Jonathan Williams, Joe Banyard and Cedric O'Neal at running back. Becomes a possible mid-round draft need for Buffalo, which has opened about $1.8 million in 2017 cap space.
