The New England Patriots bye week begins with a trade - the Pats picking up linebacker Jonathan Bostic from Chicago in exchange for a draft pick.

Bostic is 6-foot-1, 245 pounds and a second round draft pick in 2013. He was Chicago's leading tackler a year ago but fell out of favor with the new coaching regime with the Bears.

He has dealt with back and ankle injuries and spent the first three games on the game-day inactive list.
