Saints News 5/24/13: Roman Harper, Saints Agree To Restructured Contract

New, comments

According to Larry Holder, his renegotiated base salaries are $840,000 for 2013, $2.35 million for 2014, and $2.7 million for 2015. In other news,...well...there really isn't any. Junior Galette tweeted a cool Instagram pic of him falling backwards into a pool, but that's about it.
