The Miami Dolphns will need to make a decision on Elandon Roberts but that may not come until March.
Elandon Roberts started off slow in 2020 but has picked up his play over the last four weeks, just like the rest of the Dolphins defenders. He has started six games this season and continues to see more reps. He has done well opposite of Kyle Van Noy but as the season continues, the Dolphins will have to decide of replacing him is a better option for the future.
Roberts isn’t a sack machine and has one sack on the season but he has done well in helping to stop the run of late. He and Jerome Baker are getting better together and that is important but again, the question of his long-term career in Miami is something we can’t figure out right now.
Roberts made $2 million on his one-year deal and while he is becoming more consistent, he hasn’t shown enought to warrant a longer contract. He is also pushing 28 years old and while that isn’t a big deal, the Dolphins are expected to address the linebacker position in the draft and that could be a big reason why Roberts may not return.
