Deke: The "Roman" Empire

Roman Harper spoke to me on Sports Talk about his career that lasted eight years with the Saints including five trips to the playoffs and a Super Bowl Title in the 2009 season. He is as classy as they come.  “It’s a business, Deke.  We as players know that the day is going to come,” said Harper. 

Harper says that he has something left in the tank.  “I still have two great years left in me.  I’m going to see what’s out there for me and I’ll make the best choice for me and my family.”  Roman said that Coach Sean Payton called him and the two met and talked before the word was released that Harper would be officially released from the team.

Roman talked about how players deal with injuries and pain throughout an NFL Season.  And Roman thanked the fans for all of their support over the years.  “I want to thank the fans and playing in New Orleans has been great.”

Hate to see you go!!!!!
I will miss you Roman Harper. You've been a great player and a team player. After playing in New Orleans it will be hard to go anywhere else. We moved away 17 years ago to care for family and you don't realize what the city hs to offer peopleto do. I hope you get picked up by someone not to far away. Good Luck and May God Bless!!!!!
