Argos Address Need for Speed
The Toronto Argonauts have signed speedy American WR Darece Roberson Jr.
The 2021 Argos receivers weren’t slow, but there were certainly times when it would have been beneficial to have a blazer other than Chandler Worthy take the top off opposing defenses and create space underneath for their more possession-oriented stars. The Boatmen are hoping they’ve found that guy in Roberson.
The 5’10”, 170lb receiver earned academic honours at Wayne State and was literally a track star, clocking a time of 10.79 in the 100m before posting a 4.3 second 40 at his pro day. On the field, Roberson scored 24 touchdowns in 33 starts, cashing in as a receiver, punt returner, and kickoff returner.
