Saints agree to terms with WR Courtney Roby

New Orleans, La. - The New Orleans Saints announced today that they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with unrestricted free agent wide receiver Courtney Roby.

The announcement was made by Saints' Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Roby first signed with the Saints as a free agent during the 2008 season and has been one of the club's top cover-men on special teams, as well as on the kickoff and punt return unites. In a show of respect from his teammates, he's been voted the club's special teams captain the past two seasons.

A former third-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2005, the five-year veteran has played in 61 games with the Saints, averaging 25.6 yards on 94 kickoff returns with a touchdown and has posted a club-best 61 special teams stops with two fumble recoveries and one forced fumble over that period. The 6-0, 189 pounder appeared in 13 games in 2012 and again finished among team leaders with 10 special teams tackle.

He also recovered a blocked punt in the season opener vs. Washington that he returned for a touchdown and caught one pass for nine yards.

    The college football season starts in less than a 100 days, but Vegas already is weighing in on how the 2018 season  will play out. College football win totals from Vegas are out. #LSU over/under on wins in 7. I say they get more than 7. #Tulane is at 5.5 wins, I say the Wave get 6. Least shocking, they have #Alabama at 11 wins. The Tide will be in contention for a national title with Tua at QB. pic.twitter.com/rqCcr7wC3H — Garland Gillen (@garlandgillen) May 27, 2018 ...more>>
