Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts has been a bright spot for a lowly offense so far this season.
While Ken Whisenhunt’s squad is still trying to find its groove offensively, Roberts has quietly stood out. The 24-year-old wideout has 20 catches for 268 yards and four touchdowns in 2012 and could be poised for a breakout year.
“The season has been going real well,” Roberts told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug & Wolf Wednesday. “My first two years I’ve been growing and this year what everybody has been saying is ‘have your come out year.’ But I don’t really see it like that. I just try to take every game one step at a time and try to keep playing well.”
The third-year Cardinals receiver credits his maturity on the field for the increased touches and production.
“I think I just improved the most in consistency,” Roberts said. “Being consistent in all my routes, catching the ball consistently and when the quarterback sees that and the coaches see that they give you more leeway with things, they give you more responsibility and with responsibility comes a lot more catches.”
He also praises franchise wideout Larry Fitzgerald for teaching him how to run precise routes in this league.
