Andre Roberts WR WAS 5 Days2 Comments

Roberts caught two passes for a team-leading 54 receiving yards Monday against the Browns.

Roberts hauled in both passes thrown his way, and has a chance to make an impact out of the slot this season. However, he likely benefitted from the absence of receiver Pierre Garcon in this one, so there will probably be less targets to go around when the team is at full strength.

Roberts started in place of DeSean Jackson (ankle) in Thursday's preseason opener against the Patriots, the Washington Post reports.

Roberts is locked in as the No. 3 wide receiver, with Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson obviously considered the starters, and no real competition coming from behind. Neither starter's injury is considered serious, but Garcon's had a bit of trouble staying healthy over the years.

Redskins WR Andre Roberts is working as the returner with both the kick and punt units.

Roberts signed on with the Redskins to be their No. 2 receiver but suffered a quick demotion when Washington brought in DeSean Jackson a month later. The silver lining is the reduced offensive role opens up Roberts to help on special teams. Roberts has not been particularly successful as a returner, though, averaging a measly 6.9 yards per punt return and 22.4 yards per kick return. Washington would do well to find a better option.

The Redskins are considering using Andre Roberts on kick returns.

It's not an ideal role for Roberts, who averaged 22.4 yards on kick returns in his first two seasons with the Cardinals. Roberts is also the Redskins' No. 3 receiver, so they may not want to risk exposing him to injury. Chris Thompson, Richard Crawford, and Niles Paul are also candidates to be used in the return game.

Andre Roberts expressed a bit of frustration with the Redskins' signing of DeSean Jackson.

Roberts agreed to terms with the Redskins on a four-year, $16 million deal before free agency even opened. He "envisioned being the No. 2 receiver," but now admits he doesn't "know how it's going to work out." New coach Jay Gruden is going to run a pass-happy offense, so Roberts will get his chances out of the slot. But his fantasy appeal is low. Roberts is, at best, the No. 4 option.

The Washington Post reports the Redskins and free agent WR Andre Roberts have agreed to a deal.

A deal can't be signed until 4 PM ET, but all signs point to Roberts landing in D.C. He just turned 26 in January, is from nearby South Carolina, and played his college ball at Citadel. Roberts can play outside and in the slot. He'll slide in as the starter opposite Pierre Garcon and will likely end Santana Moss' run in Washington.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Andre Roberts is drawing interest from the Redskins and Browns.

Roberts is 26 years old and likely aiming for a starting job after being buried behind Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd, and Rob Housler in Arizona last year. The Browns could smoothly plug him in opposite Josh Gordon, upgrading on Greg Little. The Skins would be an unattractive locale for Roberts' fantasy value.

On NBCSN's Pro Football Talk, free agent WR Andre Roberts said he does not expect to re-sign with the Cardinals.

"I don't think I'll be back in Arizona," Roberts said. "I haven't received any phone calls from Arizona." The writing has been on the wall for quite some time. Roberts wants the pay and playing time of a number two wideout, and Arizona is unwilling to offer either. Roberts is our No. 8 free agent wide receiver.

Free agent WR Andre Roberts said he and the Cardinals haven't engaged in contract talks.

"I'm not sure about the interest of the Cardinals, yet," Roberts said. "They haven't come to me about anything. I am actually expecting them to offer me something." Roberts cited the presence of Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd in Arizona, which obviously means fewer balls coming his direction. Roberts turned 26 last month, is durable, and proved he can play in 2011-2012. He's our No. 8 available free-agent receiver. Roberts can play inside or outside.

Impending free agent Andre Roberts is expected to test the market.

The Cardinals have plenty on their plate already with Larry Fitzgerald's potentially ugly contract situation, Daryl Washington owed a $10 million option bonus and Patrick Peterson needing a long-term deal. Roberts, a No. 3 wideout who lost slot reps to tight end Rob Housler this season, is not a priority. The 26-year-old is our No. 8 free agent wideout available.
