This will be confirmed at or just after 4 p.m. Eastern today once players are allowed to sign deals with new teams, but it's pretty much a lock this morning. The Redskins have signed former Cardinals wideout Andre Roberts . The news was first broken by the Washington Post's Mike Jones. According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the pact is four years long and half of its $16 million is guaranteed.
Roberts, 26, caught 43 passes for 471 yards and two touchdowns last year.
Those numbers don't sound like much -- and they really aren't -- but they would have been good enough to make Roberts the Redskins' most productive wideout not named Pierre Garcon last season. He works well out of the slot and gives Robert Griffin III another young weapon, one who is more dependable than Aldrick Robinson or Leonard Hankerson . Roberts, however, is probably going to be RG3's third look on most plays, behind Garcon and tight end Jordan Reed . He is a WR4 in fantasy but does have some PPR upside.
