Despite a slow start as a returner in Arizona, Roberts will be given a chance at punt returns in Washington after having been an elite returner in college who led the nation in yards per return as a junior.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs SEA (9 / 5 / 29 / 1 rec)

Andre Roberts played the role of the underneath chain mover in Gruden's quick-hitting game plan which was designed to keep Cousins clean and his throws safe. Roberts caught two tough first down catches on Washington's opening drive with coverage draped all over him, a theme that would carry on throughout the evening. Roberts only gaffe on the night was when he let a pass whiff right through his hands while Washington was driving in the final minute of the first half, killing the team's momentum as they attempted to close the gap on Seattle's lead. Roberts hauled in a few key passes, including a short TD, with Washington driving late in the fourth quarter coming back from a 14 point deficit. The shifty slot receiver has found weekly success running the seam post from the slot and was able to utilize it again while cashing in on a score against a tired Seattle defense which found themselves on their heels for the first time all game.

2014 Week 6 vs ARI (9 / 5 / 55 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts failed to play big for Washington in a so-called "revenge game" against his former team. For the second straight week Roberts had a terrible drop on a pass that hit him hands, another drop from a high pass that bounced off his hands, and he coughed up a dubious fumble in the fourth quarter (his knee looked down on the replay) with Washington attempting to erase a seven point deficit. The turnover led to an Arizona FG and 10 point lead. Roberts picked up key yardage late in the fourth quarter TD drive, taking a swing pass 22 yards up the field into Cardinals territory. Roberts was heavily targeted by Cousins throughout the game, running short and intermediate routes out of the slot, but his day could have been much bigger if he had been able to haul in a greater percentage of his targets.r

2014 Week 7 vs TEN (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)

Andre Roberts played a minor role in Washington's game plan. His four targets on the day were his lowest since week one, and he was only able to haul two of them in for 18 yards. Roberts dropped a pass late in the second quarter that would have put Washington into FG range. Washington does appear to be trying to use the shifty slot receiver in creative ways, throwing an end-around swing pass to him for a nice nine yard gain. Roberts was again the primary punt and kick returner but failed to make an impact on the game in those phases.
