Andre Roberts came to Washington in the hopes of being the No. 2 wide receiver behind Pierre Garçon.

But following DeSean Jackson’s surprise arrival earlier this month, Roberts now must grapple with the fact that, in all likelihood, he’ll be Robert Griffin III’s third option at wide receiver.

“That’s how the league is, that’s how the league works,” Roberts told ESPN 980’s Inside the Locker Room on Thursday. “Going into my situation, I wanted to be the No. 2 receiver. But I still don’t how it’s going to work out. Obviously, when you look at how much money is being made each guy, you’d think that’s going to be [the] No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3.”

Roberts added: “Wherever they want to put me, I’m ready and willing to do it.”

After four seasons with the Cardinals, Roberts signed a four-year, $16 million (including $8 million guaranteed) with the Redskins on March 12. A couple of weeks later, the 26-year-old joined Griffin, Garçon, Jordan Reed, Santana Moss and other Redskins for an informal passing camp in Arizona.

Then things changed. Quickly.

On March 28, the Eagles stunned the league by releasing Jackson, a 27-year-old three-time Pro Bowler. And the Redskins pounced, signing Jackson to a three-year, $24 million contract (including $16 million guaranteed) five days later.
