Pats sign Bills RFA RB; pick on the line … New England has signed Buffalo restricted free agent RB Mike Gillislee to a two-year, $6.4M offer sheet. The Bills have five days to decide to match the offer sheet, but all indications are they won’t. If the Bills in fact do not match, they will get a fifth-round pick at next week’s draft as compensation. However, the Patriots have two 5th round picks this year, the 163rd, which they acquired from Denver, as well as #183, a compensatory pick – they traded their own #5 to Cleveland – and its not clear at this point which pick the Bills would actually get.
