Saints safety Roman Harper sat in front of his locker wearing a big grin when asked for his reaction to a $15,000 fine the NFL levied on him for his late hit on Carolina receiver Steve Smith. “My reaction to it is the smile on my face,” Harper said. Harper shoved Smith to the ground as the receiver slowly crossed the goal line during the first half of the Saints’ 30-27 victory over the Panthers on Sunday. A brief scrum between the NFC South Division rivals ensued. When asked if the fine was worth it, Harper responded, “Oh yes it was. I think the point was taken and everybody that needed to get the point got it. I think the NFL got the point. I got the point. Everybody that was involved got the point,” Harper continued. “So I think it was good for this team. I think it was good for everything.”
