The Arizona Cardinals have agreed to add 2020 undrafted receiver Darece Roberson to the roster on Thursday.

Additionally, the team has signed running back Tavien Feaster WR Andre Baccellia, defensive lineman Ryan Bee and linebacker Jamell Garcia-Williams.

Roberson played collegiately at Wayne State and did not latch on with a team last season.

Roberson scored 10 total touchdowns as a senior in 2019 and caught 34 passes for 706 yards (20.8 yards per reception). He also rushed 11 times for 118 yards and was heavily involved in special teams, handling both kick and punt return duties.

The receiver combined for 24 receiving touchdowns and two return scores in his four years at Wayne State.

He attended Florida Atlantic’s pro day on March 30 and measured in at 5-foot-9 and 168 pounds.

Roberson was clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.35 seconds.

That speed adds to a receiver room that includes sub-6-foot speed demons Rico Gafford (5-foot-10, 4.26 seconds), Andy Isabella (5-foot-9, 4.31 seconds) and JoJo Ward (5-foot-9, 4.47 seconds).

Feaster, who missed out on South Carolina’s pro day due to COVID-19, entered the league in 2020 as an undrafted free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was one of the odd men out when it came down to training camp cuts last year.

Feaster would go on to sign with the New York Giants practice squad before joining the Detroit Lions practice squad later on in the season. He did not see the field in 2020.

The running back spent the first three seasons of his college career with the Clemson Tigers (2016-18), recording 1,330 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns on 222 carries. He also chipped in 23 catches for 183 yards and a touchdown.

Feaster made his presence felt right away his freshman year, as he was the second-leading rusher (776 yards and 13 touchdowns) behind only now-Giants RB Wayne Gallman (1,133 and 17).

Following his junior year, Feaster transferred to South Carolina. In his one season as a Gamecock, the RB rushed for 672 yards and five scores on 124 carries. He caught a career high 17 receptions for 87 yards as a pass catcher.

Baccellia entered the league with the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Washington. He also spent time with the New England Patriots. The wideout saw 48 games during his time in Washington, catching 107 balls for 1,183 yards and five touchdowns. He ran for 119 yards and a touchdown on 10 attempts.

Bee played one game with the Washington Football Team as a rookie in 2019, recording one tackle after signing as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Marshall. He was released last year following training camp. He spent the majority of his time on Washington’s practice squad.

Garcia-Williams comes over to Arizona after entering the NFL as an undrafted rookie free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 2019. He was released following training camp that season. The defensive lineman played in 22 games over two seasons with the UAB Blazers, recording 44 tackles, 9.5 sacks, four pass deflections and a fumble recovery. Garcia-Williams began his college career at Eastern Arizona before transferring.
