ESPN's John Keim does not believe WR Andre Roberts will remain on the Redskins' roster "for long."
Roberts caught just 11 passes for 135 yards last season. He was already on the bubble before the draft, and the selection of Josh Doctson in the first round all but sealed his fate. The Redskins can save $4 million against the cap by designating him a post-June 1 cut. Apr 30 - 9:58 AM

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.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim said WR Andre Roberts (knee) is a potential cap cut.

Signed to a four-year, $16-million contract prior to 2014, Roberts has struggled to make an impact in two seasons with Washington. He caught under 50% of his targets in 2014 and lost his job to rookie Jamison Crowder even before landing on injured reserve with a meniscus issue last season. The Redskins can save $3 million against the cap by releasing Roberts.

Redskins placed WR Andre Roberts (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He has a meniscus issue, and will presumably require surgery. Signed to a four-year, $16 million deal by ex-GM Bruce Allen, Roberts did just a little more than nothing in his first two seasons of the contract, catching 47 passes with two touchdowns. He barely got on the field this year. Owed a $4 million base salary in 2016, Roberts will almost certainly be released.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Andre Roberts might be dealing with a meniscus issue.

Gruden acknowledged that surgery is a "possibility" and said the team will make a decision on Roberts soon. Roberts hasn't played since Week 12. Even when healthy he's been a non-factor.

Andre Roberts (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 14.

Roberts returned to practice Friday, getting in a limited session. He’s looking on the doubtful side of questionable. Roberts will be limited to kick returns if he plays this week.

Andre Roberts (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Roberts is unlikely to play after missing practice all week. Even if active, he'll be limited to kick returns.

Andre Roberts (ankle) is inactive for Week 10 against the Saints.

Roberts was limited in practice this week and listed as questionable. With DeSean Jackson healthy, he wouldn't have had more than a limited role even if active. The rest of Washington's inactives are QB Robert Griffin, CB Quinton Dunbar, LB Keenan Robinson, DE Frank Kearse, OG Arie Kouandjio, and TE Anthony McCoy.

Andre Roberts (ankle) is questionable for Week 10.

Roberts was limited in practice all week. He'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Roberts won't see more than sub-package snaps as the No. 4 receiver.

Andre Roberts (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Roberts managed only two catches in DeSean Jackson's return last week. With Jackson healthy, he isn't higher than the No. 4 receiver.
Wed, Nov 11, 2015 05:42:00 PM

Andre Roberts snagged three of six targets for 49 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 win over the Buccaneers.

Roberts caught Kirk Cousins’ longest completion of the game, a 38-yarder down the left sideline to set up first-and-goal at the seven-yard line early in the third quarter. The six targets Roberts saw were his most since Week 6 of last season when he was targeted nine times in a loss to Arizona. He won’t be on the fantasy radar when the Redskins head to Foxboro after their bye week.

Andre Roberts (quad) is questionable for Week 6 against the Jets.

A healthy scratch in Week 4, Roberts isn't a lock to be active even if healthy. Roberts has been passed by Jamison Crowder and Ryan Grant on the depth chart.

Redskins declared Andre Roberts inactive for Week 4.

Roberts is a healthy scratch after a week after coach Jay Gruden called him out for drops. Ryan Grant and rookie Jamison Crowder should get more targets with Roberts out.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 11:29:00 AM

Redskins WR Andre Roberts has two drops so far this season.

"I think he’s probably a little down that he’s had some drops," coach Jay Gruden said. "We expect more out of Andre, but he has done some good things, especially in the running game." Roberts has filled in as the No. 2 receiver with DeSean Jackson (hamstring) sidelined, but he may find himself behind Ryan Grant on the depth chart if the drops continue.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 11:20:00 AM

Andre Roberts caught 1-of-3 targets for 18 yards in Washington's Week 3 loss to the Giants.

Roberts was part of a never-ending rotation behind Pierre Garcon at wideout. With DeSean Jackson (hamstring) potentially returning for Week 4, Roberts remains miles from fantasy relevance.
