Let the hating begin....

Personally I think this was the right choice. Williams and Payton must think he's worth every penny. His highlight video is incredible. Looks like we're keeping the right people. So far we haven't lost anybody that would hurt our chances of getting to the SuperBowl.

I think Harper may really shine this year because we have better players in front of him. Perhaps if we put more of a pass rush, Harper won't be so exposed in coverage which isn't supposed to be a SS top skill.

I agree but i dont think hes the long term answer.Id rather we kept him until mccdaniel is ready or draft a bette safety next year. IMO hes way too slow.

I used to believe that but the video shows something else. Harper has great 20 yard speed but limited top end. At SS he usually is working on a TE. Depending on the defense called Harper can be exposed against speedier WR types. Most SS in the league have this problem Harpers only problem is top speed.

While some may not agree with this signing, I trust in Payton, Loomis and Williams.

"He's a Pro Bowl safety. He's one of our best football players," Williams said back in January. "I desperately want him back."

Harper (6 feet, 1 inch, 200 pounds) became a starter as a rookie in 2006 after the Saints drafted him in the second round out of Alabama, but he especially bloomed after Williams arrived in 2009

Williams has embraced Harper's versatility, using him as a blitzer and run defender as well as in pass coverage. Harper had 100 tackles, three sacks, one interception and five forced fumbles last season.

Dating back to 2006, Harper ranks second among all NFL safeties with 9.5 sacks and fourth among all NFL safeties with 11 forced fumbles. And that doesn't include the ball he stripped during the Saints' NFC championship game victory over Minnesota en route to Super Bowl XLIV.
