Seth Roberts has Raiders phone ringing

With all four Raiders' preseason games in the books, their leading receiver is Seth Roberts who finished the preseason with 15 catches for 243 yards and a touchdown. Seven of those catches came Sunday night for 110 yards as well as his touchdown. That performance along with his preseason as a whole, has team reaching out to the Raiders with interest in acquiring Roberts via trade, according to ESPN's Adam Caplan.

Roberts is entering his second year with the Raiders after he was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2014 out of Division II West Alabama. He performed well enough in last year's training camp and preseason to earn a spot on the team's practice squad.

This training camp and preseason he has taken his game to another level. There are a lot of teams out there who could use his kind of consistent pass catching abilities. They likely see the Raiders have some tough decisions to make with their receiving corps and would like to make their decision a bit easier by taking Roberts off their hands.
