Beans Don't Burr in the Grinder

Is it possible to roast an already roasted coffee a little bit darker in the oven on a baking sheet?

I bought some REALLY light roast coffee that binds up in my burr grinder.
The slightly darker roast I used before this one ground just fine, and I've never had issues with my burr grinder locking up on a bean (except when I've gotten water into the grinder by accident).
These beans can barely be ground at just under the mid-way setting. I'm under-extracting my espresso shots and it sucks!
So, given that, is it possible to roast the beans a smidge darker using my oven so that they grind better?
