The Redskins are reportedly poised to sign a member of PFT’s Free Agent Hot 100.

According to Mike Jones of the Washington Post, the Redskins and Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts “have agreed to a deal.”

Per NFL rules, no formal offers can be made or signed before 4 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday. Moreover, no other agreements can be struck. However, negotiations, including a discussion of potential contract parameters, can occur.

The 26-year-old Roberts (5-11, 195) has hauled in 182 passes for 2,123 yards and 11 TDs in four NFL seasons, all with Arizona. He recorded 43 receptions for 471 yards and two scores in 2013.

Roberts is No. 71 on PFT’s list of the top 100 free agents of 2014.

  2. No Talib but yes to Byrd. We couldn’t afford them both anyway. I like the possibility of Roberts. I just talked with a Cardinal fan and he gave good reviews. I like not overpaying on big names when we have so many holes to fill.

  3. As a Cardinal fan, I’m sad to see him go. But to whomever said he would replace Moss, you’re delusional. For a team needing a #3 and a part time #2 receiver, he’s your guy. He is not a #1 or a dominant #2 and has had stretches of the dropsies. Anyways, I wish the best of luck to him.

  4. congrats Skins fans, you got yourself a nice wr with great work ethic. He as learned how to play the game the right way from Fitz. as a Card fan happy he is getting his chance to showcase his skills, Good he didn’t sign within our division. best of luck with him and your team except when you play us this season.

  5. Great move to get some more speed and good route running with good hands on the field. It should free up the double team on Pierre. Welcome to DC. We do need to sign Byrd if we can get him, but if we can’t Talib for the right price is better than anyone we have at this point and provided we can get someone like Joseph from the Giants or Jones from Baltimore on the D-line as well as a right tackle on the O-line.

  6. Spectacular signing and yet another weapon for the 2012 Rookie of the year!! If we sign Hawkins, get ready for more track meets like Thanksgiving 2012!!! Garçon and Reed own the underneath to intermediate routes, Roberts and Hanky will break out since they will see single coverage all day and Robinson takes the top off the defense. HTTR!

  7. Moss played in the slot for Skins last year. He’s no longer a #1. So, yes he can replace Moss. Skins will ask Roberts to do exactly the same thing the Cards did.

  8. To the Cards fan, Santana Moss was #3 receiver. So, we are not for sure moving up the depth chart. Remember, Garçon and Hamkerson were our top wideouts last year. It was Garçon and Josh Morgan in 2012.

  9. As a Cards season ticket holder I can tell you a few things re: Roberts. 1st he’s never injured and shows up every week. 2nd he drops about 1 ball per season…his hands are glue. 3rd His routes are solid. My concern is him working with RG3. RG3 doesn’t stay in the pocket and IMHO I think it’ll cause Roberts to be constantly breaking routes and improvising…which isn’t his forte. Roberts would have had much better numbers with a solid pocket passer like Luck or Andy D. Roberts was a heck of a find for the Cards and he has all the potential in the world. He’s a #2 or #3 WR…don’t confuse him as a #1. Go Cards

  10. Skins – Forgot about Garcon, sorry I didn’t follow your team. What I’m saying is you have a serviceable receiver in Roberts. He will play hard every play. But he isn’t a dominant receiver and he is only 5’11”. People on here are comparing him to much better receivers (Moss, Ward, et al), or blaming the system (He was average under Whizenhunt as well). I’m sorry to see him go, solid guy and solid player, but he is also replaceable. For the Redskin’s sake, you better hope this isn’t the biggest splash you make in free agency.

  11. He’s a nice addition to your team. He was a great player and teammate here is AZ. He made some big plays from time to time back when we passed the ball a bit more. You guys got a gamer with class and work ethic. He was a project drafted to return kicks that ended up developing into a legitimate NFL wideout.
