Top 30 players in New Orleans Saints’ history
Roman Harper played for the New Orleans Saints for nine of his eleven years. He played a two-year break with division rival Carolina Panthers from 2014-2016. He came back to the Saints in 2016 and played his final season before retiring.
Roman Harper wasn’t the conventional safety that you would think of. His pass coverage game wasn’t cream of the crop, but Harper found success in the New Orleans Saints secondary and exploited that to become a great safety.
In his nine years, Harper 685 tackles, seven interceptions, one touchdown, 15 forced fumbles, and three fumble recoveries. He also hit the quarterback 40 times in those six years, which is quite a few for safety in that span. That’s why he was unconventional.
Harper proved to be an invaluable asset to the New Orleans Saints over that time period which he why he finds his way onto this list. Roman Harper was also a part of the first-ever New Orleans Saints team to win a Super Bowl.
