Jets' Andre Roberts Graded No. 1 NFL Returner Through 11 Weeks

Nine-Year Veteran Ranks No. 8 in Pro Bowl Voting for Return Specialists


According to Pro Football Focus, Jets WR/KR Andre Roberts is the highest graded returner in the NFL through the season's first 11 weeks. Roberts also ranks No. 8 in Pro Bowl voting for return specialists.

The nine-year veteran joined the Green & White as a free agent in March and leads the NFL with a 16.8 punt return average and is second in punt return yards with 285. The 5'11", 195-pounder also ranks third in the league with 531 kick return yards and eighth with a 24.1 kick return average.

"He's been really productive throughout his career," Jets special teams coordinator Brant Boyer said. "I think one thing that has really impressed me is that the guy never stops. I know one thing, thinking back to when I was playing, I would love to block for a guy like that.

"Right, wrong or indifferent, the guy never stops and that's a quality that not many returners have. You've got to hand it to him, the guy is a heck of a football player. He's tough as hell. I think the guy has done a fantastic job."
