NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed wide receiver Courtney Roby to a one-year contract.
Saints' General Manager Mickey Loomis announced the move Monday.
Roby first signed with the Saints as a free agent in 2008 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. Last season, Roby led special teams with 13 tackles and tied for the club lead with three stops in the postseason.
The club also announced that it had waived linebacker Jerimiha Hunter.
