New England and Detroit have agreed to a trade that is sending Michael Roberts to the Patriots and a 2020 conditional seventh-round pick to the Lions, per NFL Network.

But New England could use some help at the position, as Matt LaCosse now is the No. 1 tight end on the depth chart with Ben Watson suspended for the first four games of the season. His production in the National Football League has been low, with 13 receptions for 146 yards and three touchdowns. As a rookie Roberts had just four catches for 46 yards in 15 games, and was held out of the Lions' finale by then-coach Jim Caldwell for reportedly skipping a team meeting.

The 25-year-old played in just eight games last season before landing on IR with a shoulder injury in early December.

The New England Patriots added another potential project to their tight end room.

Roberts, a former standout at Toledo, had nine catches for 100 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2018.

Roberts adds another question mark to the Patriots' tight end puzzle after Gronkowski's retirement.

For now, Roberts will be competing with Matt LaCosse, Stephen Anderson, Ryan Izzo and undrafted rookie Andrew Beck, at least until Watson returns in Week 5.
