Saints complete Roby deal; Texans get two picks … New Orleans finally completed that trade with Houston for veteran CB Bradley Roby. In exchange, the Saints will send Houston a 3rd rounder in 2022 and a conditional 6th-rounder in 2023. To facilitate the trade, the Texans converted almost $8M of Roby’s base salary into a signing bonus leaving only a base salary of $1.9M for the Saints to cover this year. Roby is expected to take over the Saints’ starting CB slot opposite Marshon Lattimore, although he won’t be available this weekend as he is serving the final game of a 6-game suspension for violating the league’s PED policy.
