Redskins Sign Wide Receiver Andre Roberts

Don’t know the money yet, but the Skins moved fast on Cardinals WR Andre Roberts:

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Roberts enters his fifth season out of The Citadel. A former third-round pick, he has 182 catches for 2,123 yards and 11 touchdowns for his career. Last season, Roberts, who clocked a 4.36-second 40-yard dash out of college, last season recorded 43 catches for 471 yards and two touchdowns.

Not sure why they’re prioritizing wide receiver over more glaring needs, but noted Cards fan Will Leitch says we’ll like him, and Grantland NFL observer Bill Barnwell thinks he’s underrated. So there’s that.

Update: Jason La Canfora tweets the deal is for “4yrs around $16M, with half of that guaranteed.” SI gives the signing an A-.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.
