Wide receiver Devery Henderson-  also set to be a free agent next year, Henderson is due $2.65 million this year.  While he’s not Marques Colston, Henderson accepts his role in the offense and is fairly reliable.

Restructuring wouldn’t do much here so the Saints would be safe in offering Henderson a contract extension.  If one was offered, it would only be likely for 2-3 years.

Safety Roman Harper-  Harper just received a nice contract last year and is due to make $4.5 million this year.  Of course so did wide receiver Lance Moore and he just recently restructured his.

Harper is also targeted for a possible suspension in the “pay for performance” investigation.  Two others that could be suspended, defensive end Will Smith and Vilma, also did a restructure so Harper could be in line for one as well.

Two other restructures that could happen but are least likely are running backs Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.  Thomas is due $2.16 million and Sproles $3.5 million for this year.

    Well Mickey Loomis and the New Orleans Saints are family just call a meeting and let the team know what you are trying to do for the team. Just be honest with them I know they all have familys to take care of to so Drew Brees knows what’s going on he should except 105.0 million that’s still highest paid quarterback. Drew Brees thank of your teammates we lost some players already how many more must we lose before you take a good look you are going to need all these guys so thank about it. (Show some love for your teammates).

    Big Congrats to you Gene for your byline in yesterday’s Bleacher Report (Saints edition). You are too good at what you do. The recognition and accolades will continue to come your way (make sure when that happens, you won’t leave us in a lurch…lol).
