According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport the New England Patriots have extended Bills restricted free agent RB Mike Gillislee to an offer sheet.

Per Rapoport it’s a two-year deal worth $6.4M.

The Bills now have five days to match the offer to keep Gillislee in Buffalo. If they choose not to match the offer the Bills would be compensated with New England’s fifth-round pick.

Buffalo tendered Gillislee with an original round tender last month. Gillislee rushed for 577 yards on 101 carries to average 5.7 yards per rush and was second on the team among non-kickers in scoring behind LeSean McCoy with nine total touchdowns.
