Patriots acquire TE Michael Roberts in trade with Lions

New England Patriots

The New England Patriots are still looking for options to replace Rob Gronkowski in he wake of the star tight end’s retirement, and they are hoping a trade they have completed with the Detroit Lions will help.

According to numerous reports, the Lions have agreed to trade tight end Michael Roberts to the Patriots for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Roberts, a fourth-round pick in 2017, caught just nine passes for 100 yards last year, but three of them were touchdowns. He’s 6-foot-5 and should provide the Patriots with a big body in the red zone, which is something they need with Gronk gone.
