College career[edit]

Roberts played for the Troy Trojans from 2007-2011. He spent a year as a redshirt in 2008 for academic eligibility reasons, and another year as a redshirt in 2010.[1][2] In early 2011, he was dismissed from the program due to an unspecified violation of team rules.[3] Between the 2007 and 2009 seasons, he accumulated 14 tackles and one blocked kick.[2]

Professional career[edit]

In 2011, Roberts played for the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. He recorded one tackle in a CFL game before being injured during the season and released later that year.[4]

Roberts played in 10 games for the Tampa Bay Storm of the AFL in 2013. He recorded 27 tackles, three sacks, two forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries.[5]

Roberts was signed as a free agent to the Edmonton Eskimos on April 28, 2015.[6][7]
