Raiders send another clear message with Seth Roberts extension

The Raiders love receiver Seth Roberts. Dude’s shifty and quick. He has an NFL-best four game-winning touchdowns in two seasons. He suffered a double hernia last year and never missed a practice. He ascended from Pearl Rivers Community College to West Alabama to the Raiders practice squad to the starting lineup. Oh, and have you ever seen him block downfield? Athleticism. Clutch. Grit. Perseverance. Selflessness. That’s why the Raiders gave him a three-year, $12 million deal – with $6.45 million guaranteed – when it wasn’t required. Roberts was set to make $615,000 this season and become a restricted free agent next year, meaning he wouldn’t have been expensive even with a higher-round tender.
