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.

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.

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.

Saints re-signed KR Courtney Roby.

Roby's time in New Orleans appeared to be over after the Saints signed Darren Sproles on Thursday, but a scenario has apparently been devised where they can co-exist. Roby has notched just three receptions since the end of the 2005 season while Sproles is a much more talented returner, so it's unclear where exactly he'll be of service. He's far from a guarantee to make the Saints' 53-man roster.

The new kickoff rules for the 2011 season may put 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 also contributes as a gunner on special teams, but the Saints also have Adrian Arrington pushing hard for the fifth receiver role.
