Robertson signed a two-year extension, according to the team. NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo adds that the contract is worth more than $4 million total.

The 31-year-old has evolved into a special teams ace, making multiple pivotal plays in the Saints’ 13-3 campaign in 2018. He sniffed out fake kick attempts against the Steelers and Rams as well as recovering a blocked punt against the Falcons.
