Report: Redskins sign WR Andre Roberts to 4-year, $16 million deal

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 @AndreRoberts. 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.

Fantasy Analysis:

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 @PierreGarcon last season. He works well out of the slot and gives Robert Griffin III @RGIII another young weapon, one who is more dependable than Aldrick Robinson @AldrickRobinson or Leonard Hankerson @HankTime85. Roberts, however, is probably going to be RG3's third look on most plays, behind Garcon and tight end Jordan Reed @Real_JordanReed. He is a WR4 in fantasy but does have some PPR upside.
