Griffin gets a new WR, Andre Roberts from the Cardinals

Postby SkinsJock » Tue Mar 11, 2014 9:51 am

Hopefully these guys continue the good work - we don't need a few 'stars' - we need a bunch of guys who can play

Well, let's hope this guy doesn't turn out to be Josh Morgan 2.0 (or should I say Brandon Lloyd 3.0?). I don't know much about him except what I've read in the last 24 hours, and the consensus seems to be he brings good value and was generally underrated. Of course, that was the same kind of thing we heard when we brought Morgan in, so who knows.

I like this signing, Roberts is quick slot type of reciever. It makes me wonder if Santana Moss might be finished here.

Well, it originally occurred to me that he was a replacement for J. Morgan as a number 2 receiver. If it also means that S. Moss is gone, should Roberts work out it would be replacing 2 with 1. I have no idea if I think that is a good thing, but it seems to be one.
I know he got a pretty good zip on the ball. He has a quick release. . . once I seen a coupla' throws, I was just like 'Yeah, he's that dude.'"

I do think that Santana might be done but if he wants it badly enough I wouldn't be surprised to see him make the roster


that's the key here - we're a'wishing and a'hoping for another year or so ... :lol:

I am encouraged by having a HC in J Gruden, that will look to his assistants a lot more than Mike did but we still have a lot of holes to fill and then it will take time to have the players learning how to adapt to the new surroundings and coaching styles

I would not be surprised to see a lot of players added that are 'under-rated' like this guy - we have a lot of holes to fill

Yeah this is more likely the new Sanatana Moss than the new Josh Morgan, right?

I still want a taller WR. He's a risk but I want them to give K. Britt a one year deal.

agreed - it would seem that Roberts will take the job away from Moss - not sure if Morgan makes the roster either



I do agree that it would be nice to have a taller WR but that is more of a 'luxury' than a must have player

Lemme rephrase. We still need a legit #2. Roberts MIGHT be that, he might grow into that. But we need someone that we know can be a #2, if he's tall that'd be great too. Britt, Roberts, Garcon and Reed... That'd be a legit group.

Roberts also has return experience. He also has blazing fast speed, but so does A. Robinson.

We`ll probably draft a taller WR.

Roberts is a nice signing. You might be able to get Britt on the cheap, but I would be a little leery of signing him. He seems like he will never out grow his punk status.

Okay - point taken - I agree, there's work to be done - Roberts is young and should provide more upside but he's not a 'legit #2' - yet

Man I totally agree, but Britt makes me nervous. Great size and you see a former first round pick with a lot of unfulfilled potential. But then there are the injuries, arrests off the field issues. Ugh.

Seems to me that it looks like Garcon is the 1 Roberts is the 2, now who do we have as the slot receiver? Robinson is fast but isn't that dependable catching the ball. We also need to get another LB and a CB........

One thing you can say about Roberts is that he is a graduate of The Citadel and that carries with it a background of discipline and training. With Britt you are bringing in someone who is known to be carrying some "baggage" with him. Time will tell if the move pays off. And, there are still a lot of other holes to fill. It will be interesting to see else who the Skins target to fill those holes throughout the days of FA to come.
