I can guarantee you they didn't give up a first for Ruud...

We have our 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th before the Ruud trade, and Roger said himself we have a chance to get our 2nd back...

Re: New Orleans Saints Roman Harper could see more time at linebacker

Yes the Saints can get their 2nd rounder back but at the cost of their 3rd and 6th which is another load of bull from Ye Ole Kamissoner

Perfect ! We've been screaming forever that Harper is an LB. I love this so much. I'd like to shift MJ to SS and let quddus play FS tho.

This has actually been on my mind quite a lot the last couple of years myself. I think it's a win-win move. You get Harper playing at his strongest point and moving him away from his weakest. Even though he's a little smallish to be an every down linebacker, he still makes plays near the line of scrimmage and would immediately jump up to the top blitzing linebacker on the team.

And although his pass protection blows for an SS it's probably better than your typical LB skill level.

He covers like a typical SS. His coverage doesn't blow.

Roman Harper?

The guy who made the pro bowl as a SS?

Not saying he won't make a good LB, he probably will, but he's not THAT bad...

Disagree. He's probably our 3rd or 4th best player.
