Lions' Michael Roberts: Fighting for roster spot
Roberts appears to be on the roster bubble in advance of the 2019 season, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
While Roberts has flashed potential since being drafted in the fourth round in 2017, the Toledo product still hasn't been a consistent factor on offense. In fact, he likely would have had to compete for a roster spot in 2019 even if Detroit hadn't invested its first-round pick into a tight end. With No. 8 overall pick T.J. Hockenson added to a position group that also includes pricey free-agent pickup Jesse James, only one or two roster spots may be available at the position. Roberts' primary competition for those slots will likely come from seventh-round rookie Isaac Nauta and quarterback-turned-tight end Logan Thomas.
