Patriots' Trade for Tight End Michael Roberts Voided

The Patriots' trade with the Lions for tight end Michael Roberts has been voided.

On Friday, the Lions announced Roberts was reverted back to their roster, per trade conditions. They subsequently waived the 25-year-old.

This likely means Roberts failed his physical, though that has yet to be confirmed.

The Patriots will keep their seventh-round conditional selection in 2020 that originally was included in the trade for Roberts.

Matt LaCosse remains the No. 1 tight end on New England's depth chart with Ben Watson suspended for the first four games of the season.
