Saints sign TE Watson, LB Humber, WR Roby

METAIRIE (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran tight end Benjamin Watson to a three-year contract, and have also

re-signed special teams leader Courtney Roby and reserve linebacker Ramon Humber for another season.

The 6-foot-3, 255-pound Watson spent the

past three years with Cleveland, where last season he caught 49 passes

for 501 yards

and three touchdowns. Drafted at the end of the first-round by New

England in 2004, Watson has 321 career receptions for 3,776

yards and 28 TDs.

Roby, a reserve receiver who also ran track at Indiana, has been a regular on kick and punt coverage for the Saints since

2008. He also has returned kickoffs.

Humber has been a special teams regular and reserve defender for New Orleans since 2010 and played in 13 games last season.
