Former Saints CB Bradley Roby visits 49ers

Former New Orleans Saints cornerback Bradley Roby visited the San Francisco 49ers on Monday, per the daily NFL transactions wire. Roby was a surprise release by the Saints at the league’s roster cuts deadline in August, but there hasn’t been much buzz surrounding him.

The 49ers are going to be without second-year backup Samuel Womack III for a few months while he recovers on injured reserve, so adding Roby would make a lot of sense. They’re a Super Bowl contending roster and he’s a veteran in this league with a ton of experience. San Francisco is a great opportunity for him if he can help settle their depth chart in the secondary.

As for the Saints: second-year corner Alontae Taylor had an up-and-down debut in the slot last week, which he’ll seek to build on while learning on the job. He did give up a lot of catches (7 on 9 targets) but he compensated for it with several big tackles in the open field. The Saints are betting his arrow will continue to trend upwards after taking Roby’s job.
