New Orleans Saints Roman Harper could see more time at linebacker
 
New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper found himself in a new role Sunday against the Green Bay Packers: linebacker. And if certain trends continue, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said that could happen more frequently.

In a press conference yesterday, Spagnuolo said that injuries at the linebacker position forced him to change the depth chart a bit. Harper was moved to the “Will” or weakside linebacker position in nickel packages with his backup safety Isa-Abdul Quddus coming in for him.

Spagnuolo brought up the point that Harper does well at the line of scrimmage and this stands pat from the 2011 season. He was used frequently by former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to blitz at the line of scrimmage last season with much success.

With Jonathan Casillas(neck) and David Hawthorne(hamstring) back on the mend from injuries, Harper could continue to be utilized at linebacker if they need him to. To be honest, it’s no secret that Harper has wained the past several seasons at the safety position and considered a liability in pass coverage.

If you can play slot receiver, why cant you be a corner? Why cant Lance
Moore play defense too?

Because Lance Moore would be a Deion Sanders. He doesn't want to take or give a hit.
He'd probably be an interception machine tho

Ok back to reality

We need to be trying anything we can to better this defense. I know Danno is shaking his head and really wanted to say something about this.

At this point..try anything because what we are currently doing is not working.
