Fleur-de-Links - Jan. 14th: Saints' Roster Faces Offseason Uncertainty

New, comments

It's a shame our main topics of Saints discussion these days concerns what may happen to the roster this offseason instead of getting ready to play the Bears. But, that's the way the ole ball bounces sometimes. Or should I say, that's the way the ole Seahawks TE torches Roman Harper. I hope he doesn't expect much love from WHO DAT Nation these next few months because something tells me he won't be getting much candy from Saints fans come Valentines Day. In his defense, he did have a lot of good games for us this year and the other D players didn't exactly have a great day last Saturday either.

I look forward to much roster overhaul discussion with you guys in the next few months. Harper will be back I'm sure, but what about other defensive players like Scott Shanle and Alex Brown? Shanle has never received much love from Saints fans. Is this the year they finally find his replacement?
