He will be our #5 or 6 receiver behind Jones, Sanu, Gabriel, Justin Hardy, and possibly nick williams although he might be ahead of him on depth chart.

We also will probably get Devin Fuller back who we drafted last year from injury.


He 100% has to be better than Weems as a return man or atleast i hope he is. Haven't seen him return much how is he at it and a #5 oe 6 WR.

I still remember him feeling disrespected and acting all salty because we signed D Jax in the 2014 offseason Laughing

Weems was painful to watch last year so it shouldn't be hard to do better then he did. Still wish we could have spend this money and the money for the Shaub deal on DiMarco..

Roberts shouldn't see the field on offense. Not a good sign if he does. He was solid as a punt returner but he was miserable as a kick returner. I believe he led the league in kickoff returns that ended up inside of the 25. I hope the Falcons only use him as a punt returner or at least teach him to take the touchback on kickoffs.
