The New York Jets have signed veteran wide receiver-kick returner Andre Roberts to a one-year contract.
Roberts had just one catch for Atlanta last season Ryan Murray Jersey , but he instantly boosts the Jets’ return game, which has struggled mightily the past few years.
The 30-year-old Roberts averaged 22.6 yards on 38 kickoff returns and 7.4 yards on 27 punt returns with the Falcons. Roberts returned two punts for touchdowns with Detroit in 2016, while also averaging 22.6 yards on 33 kickoff returns.
Roberts was a third-round draft pick by Arizona out of The Citadel in 2010 and has familiarity with Jets coach Todd Bowles from their time together with the Cardinals in 2013. Roberts also played for Washington from 2014-15.
He has averaged 23.4 yards in his career on kickoff returns with one TD Alex Tuch Jersey Kids , and 8.1 yards on punt returns with two scores. Roberts also has 244 catches for 2,911 yards and 14 TDs.

Keenum, who became the starter in Minnesota after Sam Bradford suffered a knee injury in a Week One Monday night game against the Saints, completed one of four passes for five yards.
Backup Paxton Lynch promptly threw an interception that gave Minnesota a short field Ryan Callahan Jersey , allowing the visiting team to score on a touchdown pass thrown by former Denver starter Trevor Siemian.
