3. Dallas Cowboys

Speaking of the Dallas Cowboys, they too are a team that would benefit from bringing in an actual kick returner to help on the special teams' side of the ball next season. The return game is not as big of an issue for the Cowboys as the other teams on this list but that is because the team is using players that play big roles on offense to return kicks and punts.

Backup running back Tony Pollard is the team's kick returner and while he is fine, he is not anything super special. Pollard is much more important to the offense than he is in the return game and the worst possible thing that could happen is him getting banged up on a return.

The same can be said for the punt game as well. The Cowboys had Ceedee Lamb returning punts for them this season and that should not be something the team does moving forward. While Lamb has the profile of being a really good return man because of his speed and shiftiness, it simply is not worth the risk of him getting hurt when you can have someone else returning those punts.

Lamb is the future of the receiver position for the Cowboys. He is already better than Amari Cooper and with Michael Gallup likely leaving in free agency, Dallas needs to make sure they are utilizing Lamb in the proper way.

That is why Roberts would be such a good fit for this team. It would allow Dallas to let the offensive players do what they are meant to do while also bringing in a really great special teams player that will improve the team's efforts on punts and kickoffs.
