Feel awful for Chris Harper. He was known for his hands at KState and that's what lets him down today. I still hope the team realizes his potential as a possession receiver and holds onto him.


There are more deserving players that could take his spot. We kept Durham because he was a 4th round pick.....and we saw what happened.


Meh, at some point you have to keep players with potential. Durham was garbage in college, whereas Harper was a QB gone WR midway through college and showed great possession ability. The two prospects are night and day and I don't mind giving your 4th round pick at least a year to prove himself. I don't see a 6th receiver that I'd take over Harper's potential.


Yea i am hoping we keep Harper as well but that TD pass that he dropped was brutal the defenders didn't even make contact with him lol.

I think the argument between Durham and Harper both being fourth round picks doesn't really apply here. It's more about roster depth keeping Harper from making this squad if indeed he does get cut. Durham benefitted from being on a team that wasn't nearly as deep as the current roster so it was an easier decision to keep him around to develop. Harper may have much more potential than Durham but he's running into the deepest, most complete roster in the league in a lot of peoples opinion. There just may not be room on it for a project like Harper who may take another couple years to reach his full potential.

If we could get him onto the practice squad, that would be the best scenario for the future, but I just don't see that happening. Maybe with the news that Mike Robinson has been cut, this will open a roster spot up for Harper to have a chance to develop until Harvin gets activated, then it would probably be between Harper and Williams to prove they have more value to this team.
