Report: Falcons sign former Lions wide receiver Andre Roberts

It appears Atlanta has added another offensive weapon to its arsenal with the signing of wideout Andre Roberts away from the Detroit Lions.

Atlanta has signed former Lions wide receiver Andre Roberts, according to a report from the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Tuesday.

The deal is reportedly for one year and worth $1.8 million, with $750 thousand of that gauranteed, according to Rapoport.

Last season at Detroit, Roberts only had 188 yards and one touchdown as a wide receiver, but was solid in the return game. The 29-year-old had 33 returns for 747 yards for the Lions in 2016.
