Former Detroit Lions fourth-round pick and tight end Michael Roberts has announced on Twitter that he is retiring from professional football following a battle with shoulder and ankle injuries.

Roberts also revealed that he has been fighting depression and anxiety, and he has said the issues have gotten worse in the picture message down below.

Roberts was drafted by the Lions back in 2017 out of the University of Toledo. In his career, he caught 13 passes for 146 yards and three touchdowns.

The 26-year-old was traded to New England in the 2019 offseason, but failed his physical and was put on waivers.

The Green Bay Packers claimed him off shortly after, but also failed his physical there. He was signed by the Miami Dolphins earlier this year, but was again waived in July on injury-designation.
