First it was Danny Amendola, then it was Malcolm Butler, now it's Dion Lewis...all leaving Foxboro for bigger bucks in free agency.

Running back Dion Lewis will join Butler and sign with the Tennessee Titans. The new head coach in Tennessee is former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Lewis will get a 4-year, $23-million-dollar deal. $11.5 million is guaranteed.

Lewis rushed for 896 yards and six TDs. He also caught 32 passes, one for a TD. Lewis was also a kickoff returner.

The Patriots have James White and Mike Gillislee under contract and still could re-sign Rex Burkhead.

NOTE: As the new NFL fiscal year begins today at 4pm, there are various NFL reports that the Patriots are interested in signing former Bengals backup quarterback A.J. McCarron. He is now an unrestricted free agent.
