Patriots acquire LB Van Noy, trade TE Derby

The New England Patriots added linebacker depth Tuesday by acquiring Kyle Van Noy from the Detroit Lions and cut their glut at tight end in a separate deal on the day before the NFL's trade deadline.

The Patriots traded tight end AJ Derby to the Denver Broncos for a 2017 fifth-round draft pick, sources told ESPN.

Derby, a 2015 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas, impressed many in the preseason as New England's No. 3 tight end, playing 35 offensive snaps in four games after spending his rookie season on injured reserve.

In the deal with Detroit, New England will exchange its sixth-round pick of the 2017 draft for the Lions' seventh-round slot, a source said.

While deep at the tight end position, New England has been hobbled at linebacker, with Jamie Collins (hip) and Dont'a Hightower (knee) missing three combined games this season.

Van Noy is a former second-round pick of the Lions in 2014 who has promise but didn't live up to his potential in Detroit. He has seven career starts -- all this season -- and recorded 39 career tackles and one sack in three seasons.

The Lions, to fill the roster spot left by Van Noy, will re-sign linebacker Josh Bynes, who had been cut by the team with an injury settlement earlier this season.

The Patriots (6-1) travel to play the Buffalo Bills (4-3) on Sunday. The Lions (4-3) visit the Houston Texans (4-3).

Information from ESPN's James Walker, Field Yates, Adam Schefter and Mike Reiss was used in this report.
