Alfredo Roberts (born March 17, 1965) is an American football coach and former tight end in the National Football League (NFL), who serves as the running backs coach for the Los Angeles Chargers. He played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys. He played college football at the University of Miami.
As a senior in 1987, he shared the starting position with Henry, making 13 receptions for 137 yards and one touchdown, as part of a 12-0 undefeated team, that won the National Championship under head coach Jimmy Johnson.
Kansas City Chiefs
Roberts was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the eighth-round (197th overall) of the 1988 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he started the first 7 games, before being limited with a shoulder injury that required arthroscopic surgery in the offseason. He was replaced in the starting lineupe with Jonathan Hayes.
On March 18, 1991, he was signed in Plan B free agency by the Dallas Cowboys, reuniting with his former University of Miami head coach Jimmy Johnson. He was used as a blocking tight end behind Jay Novacek, helping Emmit Smith lead the league with 365 carries for 1,563 rushing yards.
In 1992, he contributed to Smith leading the league with 1,713 rushing yards and 18 rushing touchdowns. He missed the playoffs because of a right knee injury he suffered in the season finale against the Chicago Bears and was not a part of Super Bowl XXVII. He was replaced with Derek Tennell.
In 1993, he was placed on the injured reserve list after fracturing his foot during a training camp passing drill against the Los Angeles Raiders. He was eventually replaced with Scott Galbraith. On March 31, 1994, he was released after not being able to recover from his previous foot injury.
