    Meh, 31 year old punt returner and a career sketchy kicker. I’d rather see them have success somewhere else rather than risk them regressing back to their respective means here.
    We applaud other teams for always releasing a year early rather than a year late but when we do it it’s a sky is falling scenario? Nah, can’t get on board with that.

    I am still trying to find out what IF ANYTHING the Jets offered Roberts as I don't even know if they offered anything ,,,,,maybe thats why people are quoting him being pissed ? I know he got 7 mil from Buff for 2 years. As far as Bellamy = I could be wrong but he does not return kicks he plays specials but I believe he is a gunner----again I have been wrong before

    Not resigning Roberts is one of the dumbest moves this organization has made in a long time. And that's saying something with this franchise.

    This is Andre Roberts 6th team, longest he's been on a team was 3 years. We sign Bell, but continue to complain about a 31 year old kick returner.

    Career 84.3 fg % with 2 seasons in the 70s. This is what jet fans are lamenting not giving 4 mil a year to.

    Not exactly a model of good or consistent play either.
    3 punt returns tds in 6 years
    Crowder has 2 in 4 years

    We have the coach and most of the unit coming back. Signed a younger punt returner who is also a good receiver so it opens up another spot on the roster. Are people just looking for something to complain about?

    You guys are gonna regret saying that, he's apparently taking things personally with the Jets, it's the whole reason he signed with Buffalo.

    The first time he takes the ball back for more than 20 yards he's gonna be all like

    We could really solve our problems if we draft Deebo Samuel at the top of the 3rd. Damn good receiver too.

    I'll bet Roberts won't sniff what he's done for the Jets.
