I can see this happening. Could be a situation where the Saints would give up on Byrd but still want that veteran presence, Harper would make sense for one year at veteran minimum. We know if Byrd is moved it would be a substantial cap hit, on those grounds it makes some sense to sign Harper.

Hmmm... an older, slower version of the Roman Harper we had before. Not appealing.

The notion of a "veteran presence" makes me cringe as of late (see former player #39). On the surface it sounds good but without production on the field it's not getting us very far. Harp is probably a good dude & solid "locker room guy " but we need someone young with talent to step up to the plate.

There is a reason Carolina let him walk.

This smells like agent and player calling in favors with media...

I'm not convinced he'd even make the team. We have some promising young guys who also excel on special teams.
It may be time for Harper to beging his life after football as either a broadcaster or coach (his dad was a coach).

Thanks #41

Whose roster spot is he taking? I love what he's done for us but we've already moved on.
