Latest NewsPackers | Michael Roberts waived (Wed Jun 19, 05:22 PM) - Green Bay Packers TE Michael Roberts (undisclosed) was waived Wednesday, June 19, with a failed physical designation, according to a source. Our View: Well that didn't last long. The Lions traded away Roberts to the Patriots a week ago, but he was released due to a failed physical designation. The Packers picked him up shortly after that trade was voided, and now Roberts is back on the open market due to another failed physical. Roberts suffered a shoulder injury last December and clearly teams have an issue with his recovery and current health status.

He'll still probably catch on a 90-man roster somewhere with the league's desire to use more two tight end sets on offense.
