He caught three passes for eighty-eight yards in the Bills' 23–0 defeat of the Chargers in the 1965 American Football League Championship Game. Roberson led the league in all purpose yards in 1964, and was named to the AFL All-Star Game in 1965.
After his NFL career was over, Roberson became the first track and field coach at University of California, Irvine and later coached track at Rolling Hills High School.
Roberson is the only person to have an Ivy League degree, a Ph.D., an Olympic medal and a career in the NFL.
At the time of his death, he was retired from a position as psychologist with the Los Angeles Unified School District.
