Patriots deal 5th-round pick back to Packers

FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots were supposed to have just one pick in the NFL draft on Saturday, a fifth-round selection that was No. 163 overall. But with the Patriots on the clock, a trade for the pick was just announced: New England sent the No. 163 pick back to Green Bay, and received three selections in this year’s draft in return: a six-round pick (No. 197), and two seventh-rounders (Nos. 224 and 235).

The Patriots had made a trade with the Packers on Friday that brought New England the fifth-round pick. Now they’ve sent it back to Green Bay for three more picks.
