Titans sign CB Harper

Titans, former Colts CB Harper agree to terms
NFL.com wire reports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (March 13, 2007) -- Nick Harper is going from the Super Bowl champion Colts to a division rival, the Tennessee Titans.

The free-agent cornerback agreed to a three-year deal with the Titans, agent Ian Greengross said.

"Nick was impressed with what he saw when the Colts played the Titans," Greengross said. "They played the Colts close the first time and beat the Colts the second time. He likes where they are heading."

The 5-foot-10 Harper spent the past six seasons with Indianapolis. The 32-year-old had three interceptions and 58 tackles last season as a starter.

He visited Tennessee last week and said the Titans were his top choice.

That could be in part because the future of cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones' is in question after a series of off-field incidents. Titans coach Jeff Fisher recently expressed his displeasure with Jones for failing to inform the team of two arrests last year in Georgia. Jones also was interviewed by police after a triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club on Feb. 19.

Harper has been the Colts' most consistent cover cornerback in the past few seasons.

Am I not a diehard enough Vikings fan???

Seriously, if they don't make an effort to sign a player worth buying a ticket to see, I'm going to become a fan of another team. There are so many players that can help the Vikings AMAZINGLY deep holes, but they aren't ponying up any cash for decent players.

Why do I bother with season tickets? :-t

Yeah, they had to get some insurance for Jones.

But if Jones stays around is Nick Harper and Pac-man in the top 3 CB duos in the league? :-?

As previously stated, this is a very good move by the Titans.

Pacman's future with the Titans is definitely in question, so picking up a cornerback as talented as Harper is a great move. If Pacman ends up staying, the Titans will have a solid secondary.

So, if Pacman were to leave, then we would have someone to replace him at cornerback. However, his amazing ability to create big plays on kick returns would be very hard to replace.

Harper was a nice fit in Indy for a few years. Best of luck to him in Tennessee. Funny thing about Harper, as decent as he was, I'll always remember him best for two plays - 1. Running into Ben Roethlisberger in the 2005 Divisional round and 2. Getting injured so backup Kelvin Hayden could play and return a Grossman interception for the clinching TD in Super Bowl XLI. :-b

Don't worry. It's an NFC North thing.

Pacman's hearing for his felony obstruction case will continue until May and maybe they foresee that Pacman would go to jail. O:-)
They certainly need a replacement if ever Pacman gets jailed.

Anyway, i think Harper could be a solid starter.
