Saints released WR/KR Courtney Roby.

It's a mild surprise. Although Roby isn't a contributor on offense, he's been the Saints' primary kickoff returner for most of the last three seasons and is also a gunner.

Saints re-signed WR/KR Courtney Roby.

Roby doesn't play offense or handle returns, but he's been a core special teamer for the Saints since 2009. His role will remain unchanged this season.
Sun, Mar 17, 2013 04:01:00 PM

Saints WR/KR Courtney Roby was forced from New Orleans' Week 8 game against the Broncos with a shoulder injury.

He's officially doubtful, but it's almost certain his night is through. Roby has just one catch through seven games.
Sun, Oct 28, 2012 10:27:00 PM

Saints re-signed KR/WR Courtney Roby.

Roby, 29, lost his kick-return job in New Orleans last season, but did make eight special teams tackles. He hasn't caught a pass since the '09 campaign.
Mon, Apr 16, 2012 05:26:00 PM

Saints re-signed KR Courtney Roby.

Roby's time in New Orleans appeared to be over after the Saints signed Darren Sproles. Roby doesn't contribute on offense (three catches since 2005), and Sproles is a far more talented returner. Roby isn't guaranteed a roster spot.

The new kickoff rules for the 2011 season may put free agent Courtney Roby's roster spot in jeopardy this summer.

Roby is unsigned this year after a mediocre season as a returner in 2010. It helps that he contributes as a gunner on special teams, but the Saints also have Adrian Arrington pushing hard for the fifth receiver role.

Saints placed KR Courtney Roby on injured reserve with a concussion, ending his season.

Roby had been cleared to play well before last week's game, but he ended up sitting out, so it appears he may have suffered a setback. Pierre Thomas will handle kickoffs with Roby out.
Thu, Dec 30, 2010 09:22:00 AM

Saints KR Courtney Roby (head, neck) has been medically cleared to resume playing in games.

With a long week on tap for the Saints, it sounds like Roby should be good to go against Atlanta next Monday night. Roby is averaging a mediocre 23.8 yards per kickoff return this season, with a long return of 39 yards.
Mon, Dec 20, 2010 02:46:00 PM

Saints WR/KR Courtney Roby (head) received positive reports this morning and is undergoing typical head trauma tests.

Luckily, Roby's injury appears to have looked much worse than it actually was. He'll be checked for a concussion, but has avoided serious injury. If he can't return kicks on Sunday, coach Sean Payton said that Robert Meachem, Devery Henderson, Pierre Thomas and Julius Jones are all candidates.
Mon, Dec 13, 2010 12:46:00 PM

WR/KR Courtney Roby had to be carted off in the second quarter Sunday after suffering a possible head/neck injury during a kickoff return.

Roby didn't appear to be injured on impact, but rather after players piled up on him after he fumbled. The good news is that he has feeling in his hands and feet and is alert, so it looks like a really serious injury has been averted. He's been taken to a hospital for observation.
Sun, Dec 12, 2010 05:23:00 PM

Saints re-signed restricted free agent WR/KR Courtney Roby to a one-year, $1.176 million contract.

Roby increased his kickoff return average from 24.8 to 27.5 last season, finishing fifth in the league. Though he doesn't contribute at receiver, his roster spot should be safe in 2010.
Tue, Apr 20, 2010 02:15:00 PM

Saints re-signed KR Courtney Roby.

Robert Meachem showed nice explosion on two long kickoff returns in the opener, but he also looked hesitant on several other tries. Roby offers more consistency.
Tue, Sep 15, 2009 04:15:00 PM

Saints re-signed KR Courtney Roby.

Roby averaged 24.8 yards per return last season with a long of 62. He isn't much of an option at wide receiver, but will push for a roster spot in camp.
Mon, Mar 16, 2009 05:07:00 PM

The Saints declined to extend restricted free agent WR Courtney Roby a tender offer, making him an unrestricted free agent.

Roby wasn't worth the $1+ million low tender, so he'll hit the market. The former third-round pick has some return ability, but doesn't play offense.
