The Lions announced on Friday they have reverted Michael Roberts back to their roster, “per trade conditions,” after they had seemingly worked out a deal with the Patriots on Thursday. Following Roberts’ return to Detroit’s roster, the tight end was waived by the team.

Over his two-year career with the Lions, Roberts has 146 yards on 13 receptions. Three of his catches have gone for touchdowns.
