New Orleans Saints Agree to Terms with WR Courtney Roby

Courtney Roby has served as the Saints' special teams captain the past two seasons


The New Orleans Saints announced Monday 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.
