It took just a day for Roberts to secure a new opportunity after the Raiders officially cut him loose on Thursday.
It’s worth mentioning that signing Roberts to a contract won’t impact a team’s 2019 compensatory picks, given that he was released this offseason.
Roberts, 28, signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama back in 2014. He wound up spending the season on Oakland’s practice squad before signing a future/reserve contract in December of 2015.
Roberts returned to the Raiders on a one-year, exclusive rights contract in 2017 before signing a three-year, $12 million contract that included $6.45 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $4.45 million for the 2019 season when the Raiders released him on Thursday.
In 2018, Roberts appeared in 15 games for the Raiders and caught 45 passes for 494 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
