Found May 24, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported earlier in the day that the Saints had renegotiated the contract of S Roman Harper. Ian Rapoport reports that Harper actually received an extension that will add another year to his contract. According to Rapoport, Harper receives $4 million guaranteed in 2013. Harper, 30, was set to make $5.25 million for this season and had a cap number of $7.1 million. His new extension will reduce his cap figure, which is obviously good news for the Saints, considering that they have the most money committed to their 2014 cap than any other team in the league. It’s worth noting that Harper won’t have any guaranteed money beyond the 2013 season, so the Saints could always part ways with him if he puts together another disappointing season.   The post Roman Harper Signs “Extension” With The Saints appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.

Saints sign Roman Harper to an extension

New Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan seems motivated to do well with a new team after getting fired from the same position with the Cowboys.

Saints Nation: Mickey Loomis Turning in His Best Work Yet

    Last offseason I made a mistake that I later promised I would never make again. It was in the heat of Marques Colston, Carl Nicks and Drew Brees approaching a free agency hit, which forced the Saints to franchise tag their star quarterback. At the time I accused Loomis of mismanaging the offseason, and my personal favorite quote from that time coming from yours truly...

Saints Waive 2011 Seventh Round Pick DE Greg Romeus

The New Orleans Saints have waived 2011 7th round draft pick DE Greg Romeus. Romeus tore his right ACL during his final year at Pittsburgh and then tore his left ACL/MCL during 2012 OTA’s. He’s never made it to an NFL game but could mount a comeback if he has it in him. It’s not easy to bounce back from these types of injuries in back-to-back years but not impossible. The Saints...

Saints Nation: A Quiet Offseason is a Welcomed Change

This is what I often refer to as the "dead zone" for a blogger of an NFL football team. Things tend to pick up a little bit with OTAs underway and you often get little nuggets of news around now, but this period between the draft and training camp is often brutal for most bloggers and we all suffer from "writer's block". Coming up with interesting material...

Ryan: Hurt feelings bringing him, Saints together

Rob Ryan figures his firing in Dallas will only help him relate to a Saints defense humbled by a historically bad season. ''I don't like getting fired,'' Ryan said Thursday during his first meeting with reporters since Sean Payton hired him in February to revamp New Orleans' last-ranked defense. ''I know I got my feelings hurt and so did our players...
