The Miami Dolphins have re-signed linebacker Elandon Roberts.
Dolphins resign Elandon Roberts, who's coming off serious knee injury
— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) March 24, 2021
Roberts, who turns 27 years old next month, had signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins last year after spending his first four NFL seasons with the New England Patriots.
In 13 games for the Dolphins last season, Roberts offered the team a productive player against the run and finished with eight tackles for loss for the season.
The severity of Roberts’ injury, coupled with the timing of it coming so late in the season, raised the specter of rehabilitation that could cut into his availability for the early part of the 2021 campaign.
