Saints News 4/29/13: $2.6 Million of Roman Harper's Salary Was Guaranteed Last Month

Ronald Martinez

Those thinking the Saints' first round selection of Kenny Vaccaro in the NFL Draft means the immediate end for Roman Harper may be mistaken. The Saints are already financially invested in him for this season and, barring a total collapse of productivity by Harper during training camp, the veteran strong safety will likely remain with the team for at least one more year.

The nephew of former Chiefs safety Gary Stills also has "good footwork in his routes and looks fluid in his breaks, helping him separate," Rang adds. Stills "understands how to hide route intentions and (has a) second gear to speed past defensive backs. He is a lot more physical than he looks with good toughness after the catch."

New England Patriots: As coach Bill Belichick watched the Jets muddle around with Tebow last season, he went on record in October to say, "Of course he's a valuable guy." Belichick adores players from the University of Florida and might embrace the chance to use Tebow creatively on offense at a position other than quarterback. Turning Jets trash into Patriots treasure is a motivator.
