Packers | 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.

Packers | Michael Roberts finds new home with Green Bay (Mon Jun 17, 05:10 PM) - Free-agent TE Michael Roberts (Lions) claimed off waivers by the Green Bay Packers on Monday, June 17.

Our View: A failed physical nixed a trade of Roberts from the Lions to the Patriots last week. The Packers are top heavy at the position with starter Jimmy Graham and athletic rookie Jace Sternberger. We'll see if Roberts can stay healthy and impress as a No. 3 tight end.

Lions | Michael Roberts waived after rescinded trade (Fri Jun 14, 04:10 PM) - Detroit Lions TE Michael Roberts was returned to the team after the Lions' reported trade with the New England Patriots fell through Friday, June 14. Roberts was subsequently waived.

Our View: His tenure was even shorter than Austin Seferian-Jenkins stint with the Patriots this offseason. 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.
