Tight end Michael Roberts obviously isn’t healthy.

He failed his second physical in a week, Dov Kleiman reports, and the Packers waived Roberts with the failed physical designation Wednesday.

The Lions traded Roberts to the Patriots, but the deal was rescinded last Friday after Roberts failed a physical. The Lions placed Roberts on waivers instead.

The Packers claimed Roberts off waivers Monday.

The Lions made Roberts a fourth-round pick in 2017. He has 13 catches for 146 yards and three touchdowns in 23 career games.

  1. And that should be that………..until he can prove he can pass a physical, he won’t get another shot at a prove it deal……unless another team [Patriots] wants to claim him to see for themselves what the issues are, and future prognosis. It really isn’t much of a gamble to take a few days to evaluate him.

    Why do you think the Patriots should claim him off waivers less than a week after he failed their trade physical? I’m sure if he was going to have that fast of a turn around the Lions would have held on to him long enough to pass a physical and then traded him to Pats instead of waiving him. Try to keep up.
