NFL: Reports: Patriots trading TE Jonnu Smith to Falcons


Share post:

The New England Patriots are trading tight end Jonnu Smith to the Atlanta Falcons, a move that will free about $4.4 million in cap space, multiple outlets reported Monday.

The Patriots will get a seventh-round pick in return, per the reports, though it’s unclear if that’s in this year’s draft.

The trade will be processed at the start of the new league year, which begins Wednesday.

Smith, 27, caught 27 passes for 245 yards in 14 games (eight starts) for the Pats in 2022. He has 169 catches for 1,841 yards and 17 touchdowns in 90 career games (72 starts) for the Tennessee Titans (2017-20) and Patriots.

Smith will pair up with Pro Bowl TE Kyle Pitts in Atlanta. The Falcons are expected to restructure Smith’s contract.
