That sounds like it could be a goodbye, but then it could be just a goodbye to last season...
Some recent news reports have suggested the Saints may ask Harper - who is set to make as much as $5.35 million for the 2013 season as part of a four-year, $28 million contract he signed in July of 2011 - may be asked by the team to restructure his contract. Other reports have suggested the Saints my release him.
"I don't worry about it. I know the ins and outs of my contract and I feel very confident about where I stand and where I'm at and I know my coaches feel the same way,'' he said when asked about the possibilities. "So until my agent calls me and tells me something different, I'm just going to go out and play golf every day until we begin workouts.''
Hmmm. I saw the other thread about Payton's interview and he wasn't mentioned.
