Lions trading TE Michael Roberts to the Patriots

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retired after Super Bowl LIII

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retired after Super Bowl LIII

According to reports, the Detroit Lions have traded tight end Michael Roberts to the New England Patriots for a late-round draft pick.

The Patriots and the Lions have reportedly agreed to a trade that'll send a 25-year-old tight end to New England.

Roberts, a fourth-round pick by the Lions in 2017, doesn't have much National Football League experience, with 13 catches, 146 yards and three touchdowns over two seasons in Detroit. He played in 15 games as a rookie but was used primarily as a blocking tight end, catching just four passes for 46 yards. He played in eight games previous year before a shoulder injury ended his campaign prematurely. He had nine catches for 100 yards, but three of those catches went for touchdowns.

She then gave an ultimatum to the doctors, which ended without the protesters calling off their strike. However, the outpatient department and diagnostic services will largely remain suspended, he added.

With spring practices wrapped up and training camp on the horizon, the New England Patriots finally swung a deal for a tight end.

Roberts adds another question mark to the Patriots' tight end puzzle after Gronkowski's retirement. They didn't sign any major free agents or take a tight end with any of their draft picks, instead acquiring a handful of value veterans: Ben Watson, Matt LaCosse, Austin Seferian-Jenkins (since released) and now Roberts.
