From what B Mitch was saying about Roberts' potential as a dominant slot guy, he could be our new Fred Davis (the Davis who was a key piece to our offense a few years ago).

Plus, as cowboykillerz said, hopefully he's our man in the return game.
All of which is exactly like he just needs to shut up and let it come to him.


I agree. I don't blame him for feeling that way and mentioning it to his wife/girlfriend, whatever. However, saying it in public is bonehead. If I'm any GM in the league right now I'm putting him in the Cutler too baby to face competition category. There are higher paid guys ahead of him and there are going to be an endless stream of young guys coming out of college every year wanting to take his job. Whining about it is for losers. I haven't heard him offer to give up his check for his freedom either.

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 he 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.

I say give th kid the chance and see how he does before you write him off.. we don't have a shortage of players who can get the job done, although I'd prefer to keep DJax out of harm's way rather than have him returning kicks...
Although if I remember correctly they bes t the pukes one game last year largely due to his late game punt return td that was pretty much the game changer- so idk do you keep that type of threat off the field just to avoid injury??

I hope our new ST coach has them blocking and setting up returns. Something lacking for a long time. I liked Danny Smith, but he had coverage teams not return teams :( I heard Roberts numbers were from his rookie season and I'm not sure that is enough to gage from.

ummm... ck, whom has written him off??? Most are simply saying that he needs to get the whine out of the public domain... just shut up and compete.

Sorry boss, I should've been more clear.. I was referring to the csnwashimgton report in Darths post stating that "... Washington would do well to look elsewhere." Basing that off a small sample size from his rookie year. I say give him a shot to prove what he can do. I agree100% that he should let his play do the talking and shut his mouth tho!

Andre Roberts - WR - Redskins

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the team is still assessing where WR Andre Roberts fits.

Roberts is still recovering from a torn meniscus and the Redskins might be waiting until June 1 to release him so they can save an extra $1 million. If Roberts stays, he'll probably settle in as the No. 4 receiver behind DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. "We'll have to wait and see," said Gruden. "You want to keep [Roberts] around but obviously there's only one ball and there's only two or three positions so we have to figure out what we're gonna do with those spots." Roberts reeled in 11 catches for 135 yards in nine games last year.

Who knows where he'll end up. He'll be cut in June and rightfully so.

Just let me sum this up really quick.

This guy can't play the slot, he's bush, he catches a nice ball once in a blue moon and drops a lot more than that.
Another role they tried him at on returns, he's bush, he breaks a nice run once in a blue moon and flops a little more than that.

If he's here, fine so be life and just use him but he needs to stfu and just catch the ball when/IF it comes to him.

Tired of hearing anything negative coming from the Redskins players anymore, I don't care what it is.. They need to just stfu and ball.

Sounds about right.

this is a different franchise than when Roberts joined - there's accountability now that was not as important then ...

not sure that Roberts will be a part of the mix here but what he's being paid will not be the reason he's let go or kept around
