Raiders sign WR Seth Roberts to 2-year extension

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders have signed wide receiver Seth Roberts to a two-year contract extension through 2019.

Roberts was eligible to become a restricted free agent next offseason but now will be under contract through 2019 after signing the deal Wednesday.

Roberts originally signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and spent his first year on the practice squad. He made the roster in 2015 and has played all 32 games since then. He has 70 career catches for 877 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Roberts played hurt last season after having a double sports hernia in training camp. He never told the team about the injury and had surgery in January. He still had 39 catches for 397 yards and five TDs.
