Could Andre Roberts be the Jets’ answer at returner?

Could Andre Roberts be the Jets’ answer at returner?

The Jets signed 30-year old former Falcons wide receiver/returner Andre Roberts, presumably to lead the charge in the race for the #1 returner spot to start the year. Is Roberts capable of reviving this lethargic unit? Let’s look at some of his numbers.

The Jets will be his fifth team. As a receiver, Roberts has been an unspectacular yet marginally productive option. He has four 400 yard seasons in the league. He didn’t see much action as a receiver while spending his 2017 with the Falcons. This speaks to his potential role with the Jets. Roberts has a lot of...
