New Orleans Saints re-sign Courtney Roby and waive Jerimiha Hunter - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com

The New Orleans Saints announced today that they re-signed WR Courtney Roby to a one-year contract. 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 served as one of the club’s most valuable players on their special teams coverage and return units. A former third-round pick of the Tennessee Titans in 2005, the six-year NFL veteran has played in 49 regular season games with the Saints, averaging 25.6 yards on 94 kickoff returns with one touchdown, ranked fourth in franchise history in kickoff return average, while recording 51 special teams tackles and two special teams fumble recoveries.The 6-0, 189 pound former Indiana University standout was voted by his teammates as the club’s team captain on special teams in 2011 and led the team with 13 special teams tackles, also tying for the club lead with three stops in the postseason.The club also announced that they have waived LB Jerimiha Hunter.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

That's unfortunate... I mean that they waived Hunter. I was really looking for great things from him in the future, but I guess his injury hasn't healed as well as they had hoped.

Strange re-signing. A special teams gunner over anything else?

I doubt they're finished signing folks. We need special teamers too, and he's probably an above average STer.

Besides, he'll probably struggle to make the team.

Yeah you're right. With limited draft picks and cap space I suppose bringing back a proven special teams stud for what I would imagine is a very minimum one year contract is probably the smart move. Hopefully Joe Morgan takes his spot though as the back-up return man next year though.

Wow! Reggie Roby! I guess it is to put a little pressure on Morstead. But, I thought he passed back in 2005 or 2006.
