The Jets announced they signed receiver Andre Roberts to a one-year contract.

While Roberts made only one catch for the Falcons last season, he averaged 22.6 yards on 38 kickoff returns and 7.4 yards on 27 punt returns. The Jets expect him to take over those duties for them.

Roberts, 30, has averaged 23.4 yards in his career on kickoff returns with one touchdown and 8.1 yards on punt returns with two scores.

In eight seasons, he has played for four teams. The Cardinals made him a third-round pick in 2010, and he also spent time with Washington and Detroit as well as the one season he spent in Atlanta.

  1. Great signing. He’ll do good with Coach Bowles and Stump Mitchell. Plus, the Jets are getting a good locker room guy who will be a good mentor for the rookies. Love the way the Jets are building their team and their hunger to win!

  2. I like this signing, Jets have had a mediocre return game for years this supplements that. Must say I like many of the moves being done, but it’s all for naught if they botch the 3rd pick. Must admit I am looking forward to the upcoming season. Haven’t been able to say that for quite some time.
