League source confirms that $2.6 million of New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper's salary was guaranteed last month
 
1 Attachment(s)
A league source confirmed that $2.6 million of New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper's salary became guaranteed on the third day of the league year last month, which was reported by ESPN.com. Obviously that makes a big difference when speculating on Harper's job security.

Harper is due a total salary of $5.25 million this year, plus another $100,000 roster bonus. So the Saints could still save $2.65 million if they released him. But that option now seems less likely since they have already made such a financial commitment to him - even though they did just draft a potential replacement in first-round draft pick Kenny Vaccaro.

Harper's salary-cap figure this year is $7.1 million (his salary, roster bonus and $1.75 million in pro-rated portion of his signing bonus). If the Saints release him, he will count $4.35 million against this year's cap, plus another $1.75 million against next year's cap (the remaining pro-rated portion of his signing bonus).

(NOTE: If this year's workout bonus counts as extra, on top of the guaranteed salary, then he would cost the Saints $4.45 million against the cap this year).

This will be his last season with the Saints. Sad to say as he brought the wood in years past. Maybe they can turn him into the safety blitzer he once was. Dude still has the thickest freaking neck I have ever seen on a human being.

Harper has played well for the Saints and helped them win games. He's good at what he does well being an in the box safety and rushing the passer. Is he overpaid for his impact and overall ability? Absolutely. But, he's not s bad football player.

It was difficult to cut him last month because we didn't know we were getting Vaccaro. If only we had known...... :(

I hope Harper stays and plays in the box which is where he's good. Cut Jenkins and play Vaccaro at FS. Problem solved. :wink:

Thats nonsense. Its not even close. Charles Grant, Will Smith, Deuce McAllister, and Jason David, were much much worse.

Harper has been productive for the majority of that contract.

I agree, Danno. It's really hard to say what kind of player Harper is after a season with a defensive coordinator that didn't have a clue. None of our schemes did him any favors, and, as a D coordinator, your job is to utilize your players' strengths and mask their weaknesses. Even Coach Williams hung our secondary out to dry far to often. If we were to rate each defender from last season's team to decide if they deserves their current contract then no one would be getting paid. Maybe Jordan and Lofton....maybe
