Roberts' opinion in that case was predicated on the underlying premise that the Vacancies Act was an acceptable way to fill posts that could otherwise remain vacant indefinitely if the President and Senate could not agree on a replacement.
That was never going to be the case with Sessions' departure, since the DOJ already has a Deputy AG (Rosenstein) who was qualified to fill that role and met the requirements of the Appointments Clause because he had been confirmed to his Deputy AG post by the U.S. Senate.

I read that weasel Rosenstein has said he is going to resign because he thinks if he doesn’t Trump will fire him
Probably another lie.
