The Redskins snagged the Cardinals' former wideout in one of their first moves in free agency.

The Washington Redskins have added another offensive weapon for Robert Griffin III with the announced signing of wide receiver Andre Roberts to a four-year contract, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Roberts will reportedly receive $16 million over the life of the contract.

At 26 years old, the former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver figures to be entering the prime of his career. He didn't have his best season in 2013, sitting third behind Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd on the depth chart. Roberts caught only 43 passes for 471 yards last season. His best campaign came in 2012 when he caught 64 passes (on 113 targets) for 759 yards and five touchdowns. All three of those totals remain career highs.

Roberts started out strong in last season's opener with eight catches and 97 yards against the St. Louis Rams before suffering a four-game stretch in September and October when he had a combined 17 yards receiving.

Roberts now gives Griffin another target along with Pierre Garcon, Leonard Hankerson and tight end Jordan Reed.
