Former one-time Lion Andre Roberts--a cat with nine lives

9. I think the Interesting Note of the Week That No One Realizes (I invent some pretty weird stuff in this space) is this: Returner/receiver Andre Roberts signed with Carolina last week. It’s his eighth team in nine years. Let us count:

2013, Arizona. Last season as Larry Fitzgerald’s receiving partner (182 catches in four years) and golf partner.
2014-15, Washington. Had a 99-yard TD on a kickoff return at Carolina in 2015.
2016, Detroit. Had a 55-yard punt return for TD in win over Jacksonville.
2017, Atlanta. Unimpactful.
2018, N.Y. Jets. Superb year. First-team all-pro, with punt and kick returns for TD.
2019-20, Buffalo. Made his second and third Pro Bowls as dual-threat returner.
2021, Houston. Played six games, cut after fumbling against the Colts.
2021, L.A. Chargers. Had his longest kick return, 101 yards, a week shy of turning 34.
2022, Carolina. Joined his sixth team in 54 months.

i thought he was our best returner since Drummond. But I guess these guys aren’t valued too highly.
