  Broncos | Two defensive players not expected back    Mon Jan 21, 10:07 PM

Denver Broncos impending free-agent LB Shane Ray and CB Bradley Roby are not expected to re-sign with the Broncos this offseason.

Footballguys view: Ray didn't get his fifth-year option picked up by the Broncos for 2019. He was inactive over the last few games of the year as a healthy scratch and his time is clearly done. Roby will test the market, as he should, but there might be a small chance that his market is so cold the Broncos could bring him back. New Broncos head coach Vic Fangio should have a much better defense that fits what Roby does well (zone coverage).

  Falcons | Week 2 Inactives    Sun Sep 14, 11:34 AM

The Atlanta Falcons have declared DL Cliff Matthews, WR Courtney Roby, OT Jake Matthews, C James Stone, CB Javier Arenas, QB Sean Renfree, LB Tyler Starr inactive for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Matthews being out is a blow to the offensive line, but Matt Ryan looked up to the task against the Saints last week. He's still a QB1 against the Bengals on the road this week.

  Falcons | Will add Courtney Roby    Fri Jun 27, 07:04 PM

The Atlanta Falcons will sign free-agent WR Courtney Roby (Saints).

Footballguys view: Roby has plenty of experience, but we're not expecting much from him if he even makes the team. The nine-year pro has only 25 catches during his pro career. We'll see if he can make an impression as a special teams player as a return man.

  Saints | Six cut    Sat Aug 31, 04:25 PM

The New Orleans Saints cut WR Courtney Roby, QB Ryan W. Griffin, CB Chris Carr, DT Isaako Aaitui, C Elliot Mealer and LB Rayford Shipman.

Footballguys view: Griffin should find his way to the practice squad. He's an intriguing prospect in super deep dynasty leagues. Griffin has enough pocket mobility to climb the ladder and escape edge pressure. He has a strong arm who can make throws with proper velocity but he needs to do a better job of manipulating the defense with his eyes.

  Saints | Joe Morgan battling for No. 3 job    Tue Jul 30, 01:34 PM

New Orleans Saints WR Joe Morgan is battling WRs Nick Toon, Kenny Stills and Courtney Roby for the No. 3 wide receiver spot in training camp behind WRs Marques Colston and Lance Moore.

Footballguys view: Morgan is an interesting name to remember. He's got an intriguing size/speed combination and can track the ball deep. If he plays up to his potential then he could make a nice 'what the heck' flex from week to week.

  Saints | Robert Meachem, Pierre Thomas might return kicks    Thu Dec 16, 01:00 AM

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said Wednesday, Dec. 15, that WR Robert Meachem and RB Pierre Thomas likely will be first in line to return kicks in Week 15 against the Baltimore Ravens, reports Mike Triplett, of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. A replacement is needed for WR Courtney Roby (concussion), who was carted off in Week 14 against the St. Louis Rams and not expected to play on Sunday.

Footballguys view: This is a good indication of where Thomas and Meachem are in the offensive game plan, which is not at the forefront.
