Roman Harper has restructured his contract


quote:

Saints SS Roman Harper has agreed to a restructured contract.

It's been a long-time coming, but it's unclear what the sides have done. $2.6 million of Harper's $5.25 million base salary became guaranteed by virtue of remaining on the roster through March. It's possible his salary has been slashed to only the guaranteed amount. Harper's play in 2012 would certainly dictate such a move. The full details of the restructure should soon emerge.

quote:

Saints SS Roman Harper has agreed to an "extension" that pays him $4 million guaranteed this season.

We've air quoted "extension" because it's actually a pay-cut. Harper had been set to make $5.25 million this season, with $2.6 million of it guaranteed. The extra year, 2015, allows the Saints to stretch out bonus money and cap hits. Harper has no guaranteed money beyond 2013. Considering Harper's nightmarish 2012 play, it's not a bad deal for the 30-year-old safety.

@RapSheet: My understanding is that Roman Harper now is signed through 2015, so he tacked on an extra year to his deal. Should help Saints cap-wise

re: Roman Harper has restructured his contract


well both our starting safeties have/had potentially expiring contracts and Kenny cant play both positions at the same time..so we needed someone to extend while creating cap space for us...again id have rather outright cut the older more expensive guy...but we shall see how this all plays out...loomis tends to get things done.

re: Roman Harper has restructured his contract


good, now we have our 2 safeties for the long term. Time for Jenkins to return to 2010 form, or hit the road.

People hate on Harper, but we have always known what he is. He's our in the box strong safety who's good at blitzing.

The problem is that we haven't had a good FS since 2010 and our corners are always hurt.

Loomis finally got Harper right



Didn't think Harp would do it.

You really think Harper will see those last two years?

Yep. Harper took a pay cut to essentially audition to play out the rest of his new contract.

Barring signing a good replacement in the next 2 years or hitting on one in the draft, I'd rather Vaccaro/Harper over Jenkins/Vaccaro.

it'd be nice for jenkins to live up to his potential and we have 3 good/great safeties rotating in packages.
