The New England Patriots have acquired defensive tackle Jerel Worthy from the Green Bay Packers via a trade that's pending a physical, according to his agent, Chafie Fields.
Worthy, a former Michigan State standout, was acquired via the Patriots sending a late-round draft pick to the Packers.
Worthy has 15 career tackles, 2.5 sacks and one forced fumble. The 6-foot-2, 308-pounder had just one tackle last season in two games.
