CB - NO
Week 7 Outlook
The New Orleans Saints have traded for cornerback Bradley Roby, formerly of the Houston Texans.
This is a massive addition for the New Orleans Saints secondary. They lost Janoris Jenkins this offseason and had no one proven to play alongside Marshon Lattimore. Though he played in just 10 games in 2020, Roby is coming off his strongest season since 2017 and should make an immediate impact for the Saints. He makes for an intriguing CB2 target in IDP leagues as opposing offenses will actively look to avoid Lattimore in coverage when possible. Roby will miss Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers as he serves a suspension.
Texans' CB Bradley Roby has been suspended six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy, per source.
Roby addressed his fans on social media on Monday stating that he has been suspended six games for having, "unknowingly used a product that was contaminated with a banned substance" which violated the league's policy on PEDs. Roby's season now ends and an already vulnerable Texans' secondary will provide an even better matchup for opposing offenses, starting with the division-rival Indianapolis Colts in Week 13.
Houston Texans cornerback Bradley Roby returned to practice on Wednesday.
Roby was held out of the Texans Week 9 win after complaining about the defensive schemes the team was running. He will be back in action in Week 10. His absence was felt with Vernon Hargreaves also missing the contest, as Jake Luton looked like a seasoned veteran for portions of the game. Roby should spend a bulk of his snaps checking Jarvis Landry.
Texans CB Bradley Roby (not injury or COVID-19 related) will not travel to Jacksonville with the team. He has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Jaguars.
The Texans will be without their top-CB and Roby's absence is an upgrade for the Jaguars wide receivers, mainly, D.J. Chark. While details of Roby not traveling have not been disclosed, he should be considered questionable for the Texans matchup against the Browns in Week 10.
Bradley Roby recorded 4 solo tackles, two pass breakups, and an interception returned for a TD in a 23-20 win over Tampa Bay.
Roby's pick-six came on Jameis Winston's first throw of the game and turned out to be a crucial play for a Houston offense that couldn't find its footing. Roby and the Texans have a rematch against the Titans for their season finale.
