Saints sign Roby, cut Ortega

The New Orleans Saints have signed free agent wide receiver Courtney Roby, who was the primary kickoff returner for the team for five games last year.

Roby first signed with the Saints midway through the 2008 season and returned kicks before landing on injured reserve. He averaged 24.8 yards on 19 kickoff returns for the Saints last season.

To make room for Roby on the roster, the Saints cut tight end Buck Ortega, who split last season between the practice squad and the active roster.
