Signing with Steelers
Pittsburgh is signing Roberts to a two-year contract Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
Roberts racked up career numbers with the Dolphins last season, surpassing the century mark in terms of tackles while notching 4.5 sacks in 17 regular-season games. Heading into his age-29 season, Roberts seems like an ideal fit to shore up a key role in Pittsburgh's linebacker corps.

Career Stats by Season: 2016 to 2022
Career numbers in contract year
Roberts racked up 102 tackles (68 solo) and 4.5 sacks across 17 regular-season games with the Dolphins in 2022.
Roberts eclipsed 100 tackles for the first time in his career while also notching a new high in terms of sacks while on a one-year deal with Miami in 2022, so it's conceivable that new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio could want him back for 2023. The 28-year-old has spent the last three seasons with the Dolphins and would bring some veteran consistency to a relatively young linebacker corps if he's re-signed.
Notches another sack Week 17
Roberts posted 10 tackles (seven solo), including one sack, in Sunday's 23-21 defeat versus New England.
Roberts matched his season high in tackles while also logging his second sack in as many games. This sack also ended the Patriots first drive of the second quarter, as the 28-year-old linebacker brought down quarterback Mac Jones for a 12-yard loss on third down. Roberts also logged one of his seven solo tackles on special teams, and he has played 113 of his 729 total snaps in this phase over 16 games. He has now accumulated career highs in both tackles (103) and sacks (4.5) this season.
