NFL Roster Cuts 2013: Saints Release Courtney Roby

New, comments

The New Orleans Saints make their first surprising roster cut of 2013, releasing veteran wide receiver Courtney Roby after five years with the team. But who knows, he may be back again.

Chris Graythen

The New Orleans Saints have released wide receiver and special teams ace, Courtney Roby, according to a league source.

This is definitely the most surprising cut so far, and possibly the most disappointing. With news that Andy Tanner had made the final roster, we knew either Roby or Preston Parker would probably get the ax. Sad to see such a great special teams player and veteran of this team finally leave.
