A WHOLE PIE!

I understand his past with our franchise and you guys may not like him, but he's a solid SS and with our front 7 in front of him, I expect that he will keep our secondary in check. I really don't see how it's the terrible signing some of you are making it out to be.

I don't like him but I do like the signing so I agree.

I swear, sometimes I think half this board are Steve Smith fans and not Panthers fans.

It's not that it's a terrible signing.  He's a decent veteran option.

 

It's the history he's got here that leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth.  Especially fresh off losing Steve Smith.

I don't know maybe cuz ranked 87th out of 88 in 2012 by PFF... Last year was better but damn the saints gave 2 fugs about him...they drafted vaccaro last year and broke the bank for Byrd this year.

If it was vet minimum that'd be one thing or maybe if we had a LT or a receive me on the team that wouldn't hurt either

Just looking at the commentary from the Saints forums, a few blogs, and PFF it looks like a poo signing.

Hate him now!!!!

Will love him if he could pick a lot of Bress' balls and put that ugly foo on the ground a few times.

Feel free to look at Mitchell's PFF ranking in 2013.

He doesn't have to be outstanding but he's a veteran who can lead our otherwise young DBs and keep the back end of our D from being awful next year.

First time he makes a big play everyone will cheer him like they've loved him all along.

A leader you say? Why would we bring in a low character leader like Harper?

Saints fans saying it's a bad signing is not a surprise. He was horrible in 2012 but remember the Saints had basically no coaching at all that year. He was better last year with Payton back. I think he will look good behind our front seven.

He's low character when he's on another team, but when he's on your favorite team he'll be a "fiery competitor." If Steve Smith, wasn't ever a Panther, most of us would probably loathe him.
