Roberts is signing a two-year contract with the Texans, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
ANALYSIS
The contract reportedly is worth up to $5.95 million, though some of that may be in unlikely-to-be-earned incentives. Roberts primarily has served as a return specialist throughout the second half of his career, reaching the Pro Bowl three straight seasons from 2018 to 2020. It's an odd luxury signing for a team that otherwise seems to be rebuilding, unless the team for some reason thinks Roberts can reemerge as a receiving threat in his age-33 campaign.

After posting career bests in both kickoff (1,174) and punt (324) return yards last season, Roberts earned All-Pro and Pro-Bowl honors. He'll now move within the AFC East from the Jets to the Bills, with whom he should take on a similar workload on special teams. When it comes to offensive contributions, however, Roberts -- who has not had more than 14 receptions in any season since 2014 and only topped two touchdowns in a season once -- will have a tough time overtaking fellow receivers John Brown, Cole Beasley, Robert Foster and Zay Jones.
Roberts should return kicks and punts for the Jets on special teams, but he's unlikely to play more than a handful of snaps on offense all season.
Perhaps enticed by the opportunity to catch passes from the reigning league MVP, Roberts inked a one-year deal with the Falcons during the offseason. The Falcons will mark Roberts' fourth team in eight seasons, having already made stops in Arizona, Washington and Detroit. Roberts' talents aren't limited to wide receiver, as he returned 20 punts and 33 kickoffs with the Lions last season. The Falcons are looking for a reliable return man after Eric Weems signed with the Titans as a free agent. Roberts is more likely to make an impact on special teams than as a wide receiver for the Falcons this season.
Roberts is coming off an unproductive season in Washington and is not a lock to make the Lions’ final roster. However, he is one of a couple wideouts vying for the Detroit’s No. 5 receiving role that can also return value on special teams, which can only help his case to make the team. He’ll need to beat out fellow veterans Andre Caldwell, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Kerley, as well as undrafted rookies Jay Lee and Quinshad Davis to do so, though.
Roberts’ first season with the Redskins was highly disappointing. He was expected to take on a larger role until the team picked up DeSean Jackson, dropping him to the team’s slot receiver much like he was with Arizona. His 2014 campaign resulted in 36 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns on 72 targets. The team drafted Jamison Crowder in the 4th round, who has a similar skill set but more upside, leaving Roberts fighting for a similar or even smaller role in 2015.
After laboring behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd for two years, Roberts finds himself in Washington, laboring behind DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Nonetheless, he presumably gets a quarterback upgrade with Robert Griffin under center, and Roberts should have a significant role as the team’s primary slot man. At 5-11, 195 and with 4.46 speed and good quickness, Roberts can get open in the short areas of the field. He’s not much of a red-zone threat, however, and Jackson’s likely to run most of the deeper routes. Moreover, tight end Jordan Reed should also see his share of targets.
Roberts was the team's most productive and efficient receiver last year – but that's damning with faint praise. While his 6.7 YPT ranked 33rd out of the 39 100-target receivers, it was far better than Larry Fitzgerald's league-low 5.1 mark, and both suffered from the same quarterbacking deficit. At 5-11, 195 and with 4.46 speed, Roberts is a quick, nimble underneath receiver, but he's not going to make more than the occasional big play. And with Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd around, he's unlikely to see much red-zone work. But the upgrades at offensive line, quarterback and head coach should benefit all three receivers, and Roberts’ skill set is a nice complement to that of his bigger, more physical teammates.
Roberts caught 51 passes and tied for second on the team in targets in 2011, but will be hard-pressed to match that in 2012. The drafting of Michael Floyd may not push Roberts out of a starting spot right away, but we expect Roberts to fall down the depth chart at some point this year. Roberts' numbers last year were middling - 51 catches, 586 yards and two touchdowns - and probably won't become any better than that this year.
Roberts, a virtual unknown heading into the 2010 season, made a fantasy splash down the stretch, finishing the year with 24 receptions, 307 yards, and two touchdowns. With the departure of Steve Breaston and the injury-plagued history of Early Doucet, Roberts could find himself with the opportunity to seize the No. 2 slot. Roberts, who will be catching passes from Kevin Kolb instead of John Skelton in 2011, could be primed for a solid season in the desert.
Roberts is expected to compete with Justin Miller for the return specialist duties during training camp. In the long run, he may be able to fill the No. 3 receiver slot as the comparisons here have been made to current starter Steve Breaston. Unless your league counts return yardage, it's unlikely that Roberts will provide enough consistent help in the passing game to merit consideration on draft day.
