Pass coverage is just something he does not excel in.
Tell him to put on 15 pds and play OLB!

Agreed, adding either Jenkins or someone like Mack will be important regardless of what happens with the draft.

Harper is a good in-the-box strong safety, who excels in the areas that this type of a player should excel in - I can't remember too many occasions when he has been burned because of the mental side of his game.

Harper's worth is dependent on Ryan, his scheme, and whether or not Harper can fit the role of the SS going forward. If he isn't a good fit, they'll probably look to cut ties with him one way or the other. But if he seems like a fit, they'll probably just keep hold of him while maybe trying to do something with his contract to make him more releasable/tradable in the future.

Harper is arguably above average in pass coverage when it comes to flats, which is what his type of a SS is expected to be - he is not a FS or a CB.

If only it would be that simple.

Re: New Orleans Saints Rumors: Team Targeting Mike Jenkins

I so not believe in "due to bounce back".

Either there is a logical reason he should play better this season or he is not worth trying to get.

The Titans (Gregg Williams) don't need him now that they signed Pollard who is pretty much the same type of safety Harper is.

Re: New Orleans Saints Rumors: Team Targeting Mike Jenkins

This article is crap. The title is stupid **** misleading and it just goes downhill from there. There are a whole bunch of shoulds and coulds and absolutely nothing that says anyone on the coaching staff or in the front office has even mentioned his name, much less are actually "targeting" him. On top of that, coveting Tracy Porter? Really? Another dropout from the Dick King School of Sports Hackery.
