Roberson Heads Long Shot List

May 4th, 2012

Joe hears the name Derrick Roberson and gets hives remembering him being overmatched covering Roddy White in a late-season close game in Atlanta back in 2009. What a brutally painful loss that was.

Aqib Talib was down with an injury (surprise) and the Bucs were forced to test their painfully thin depth.

It wasn’t pretty.

But Roberson, 27, is still clawing his way to a NFL career. He was a September cut from the Bucs in 2010, before landing in Cleveland that season. He played some UFL ball last year. And now he’s in “rookie” camp with some select other non-rookie bodies trying to beat the odds and make the Bucs’ roster. Roberson played for the Greg Schiano at Rutgers.
