Safety Roman Harper, one of the key pieces to the New Orleans Saints' Super Bowl championship team in 2009, will return to the Saints, his agency said in a Twitter message posted Tuesday.

Harper played his first eight NFL seasons with the Saints, before the team released him after the 2013 season. He played the last two seasons with the Carolina Panthers, helping them reach the Super Bowl in 2015.



At the time of Harper's release in February 2014, the Saints were $12 million over the projected salary cap and had younger players at his position in Kenny Vaccaro and Rafael Bush.

Lol really? I liked him whilst he was here but he couldn't run by the end, now he's 3 years older...

Is Payton going to try and get Malcolm Jenkins back next?

He still has to make the team. Great team mate, but not sure at this point if he's any better than what we already have.

Then again, he may just be here to learn the system in case injuries pile up and we re-sign him during the season.

I think as long as Vonn Bell stays healthy, then Byrd's days are numbered

Kenny Vac was a rangy safety in college so maybe he drops back into coverage?

Byrd be gone?

Will Harper spill the beans on the Panties playbook?

Odd. I wonder if he'll make the team. I think Payton is bringing in vets to help lead the defense.

Yes sir. At worst, solid DEPTH & ability to do good things in the box... maybe in a LB/S hybrid role, no?

I wouldn't be mad if he did.
