Report: Patriots trade conditional seventh-round pick for Falcons TE Eric Saubert

New England trades for a tight end formerly out of Drake.

The New England Patriots have acquired Atlanta Falcons tight end Eric Saubert in exchange for a conditional seventh round draft choice, per ESPN's Mike Reiss. 

Saubert has five receptions for 48 yards in his two-year tenure with the Falcons. The signing of the tight end may foreshadow some injury news surrounding Matt LaCosse, who exited the Patriots' preseason opener with an undisclosed injury.
