Vacarro had to do it all my himself. Like I said, there is no need to trash Vacarro to build up Harper. We know what Harper can do and we know what he can't do. The only thing he's got over Vacarro is experience. He should have more experience, he's been around longer. I just hope he's faster than a slug. And spare me the Vacarro is only slightly better than Harper because that's baloney too.
Vaccaro is only slightly better than Harper.

Locker room guy and player coach. They missed his leadership more than anything. He did have career years at Carolina so maybe we get lucky and get one good year of play.

Exactly.

My guess is that Dennis Allen will use a similar scheme to Gregg Williams with that in the box safety. Vaccaro is the new Roman Harper, and if Vaccaro gets hurt and misses a few games we can keep using the same scheme with Harper back in the box.

They're probably hoping Harris can become the back-up to Vaccaro, but if not we have Harper as a very capable back-up.

Re: Roman Harper Signs With Saints

We sign 3-4 guys like this every year- a guy who missed an entire season, was a cap casualty, didn't fit the system, whatever. Hell, we've signed 5 this year. The question is always what do we give them up front?
We gambled and lost on Bailey (500,000), and Spencer, Chamberlain, Dan Morgan, etc. didn't work ,but we have done okay with some role players.
Every team takes a shot or two. The only noteworthy part here is that it is an ex-Saint

Your opinion. It's garbage, but it's still yours.

Re: Roman Harper Signs With Saints

Join the coaching staff after his career is over? Is Rapoport just saying that because he was re-signed late in his career? Or does he actually have a source?

I was surely looking at upgrading at SS this season. Maybe next season.
