Lions Agree to Terms with Ex-Jets CB Darryl Roberts

John Maakaron

The Lions continue to add to their secondary, agreeing to terms with former Patriots and Jets cornerback Darryl Roberts Thursday.

According to the NFL Network, the agreement is for one year.

Roberts was selected by the Patriots in the seventh round of the 2015 NFL Draft. 

In his rookie season, Roberts injured his wrist during his first preseason game -- which came against the Packers. 

He was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.

After training camp in 2016, Roberts was released by the Patriots, and he signed on with the Jets.

In 2018, Roberts played in all 16 games for the Jets. 

In 10 starts, he recorded 48 combined tackles, seven passes defensed and one interception.

Roberts started in 10 of the 13 games that he appeared in during the 2019 campaign. 

He recorded 62 tackles, one interception and six passes defensed. 

In addition to logging 713 defensive snaps, Roberts also logged 143 plays on special teams. 

In Detroit, he'll join veterans Desmond Trufant and Justin Coleman in the secondary. 

Amani Oruwariye, Mike Ford and Jamal Agnew are all also in competition for more snaps in Detroit's secondary this upcoming season.
