Saints Free Agents Awaiting Their Fates
Safety Roman Harper is one of many free agents on the New Orleans Saints roster, who will have to wait to see where they will be playing in 2011, due to the NFL lockout. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper could easily label himself as one of the biggest victims of the NFL lockout. The five-year veteran was supposed to become an unrestricted free agent this year, but he's stuck without a contract for now, and the next set of league rules could make him a restricted free agent instead.
Harper seemed surprisingly upbeat about the situation Tuesday night as he joined his teammates in fullback Heath Evans' charity softball showdown at Zephyr Field.
