The New Orleans Saints will have a new Team Captain on Special Teams after some recent moves made on the roster.
According to the Twitter account of Saints backup QB Chase Daniel, WR/KR Courtney Roby is now the Captain on Special Teams for the Saints. Roby has been a very consistent player on Special Teams in kick returns and tackles.
Roby will take over the position of Captain from veteran S Pierson Prioleau who was made Captain of Special Teams at the beginning of the 2010 season. Prioleau was released by the Saints late yesterday.
One other candidate for Special Teams Captain, S Chris Reis, was also released in a surprising move by the Saints. Reis will be remembered for recovering the onside kick “Ambush” in Superbowl XLIV.
Reis was also known for his resemblence to former Saints Special Teams player Steve Gleason, with both players having long, shoulder length hair. Reis and his wife both recently celebrated the birth of their newborn baby.
