(WVUE) -

As an NFC South foe they play twice a season, the Saints know the Carolina Panthers well. But there is one player on their roster that knows them better than anyone.

"Like I told this team, I'll give them as much or as little information as they want."

Safety Roman Harper spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons with Carolina and had great success and memories.

"Probably one of the better things to happen to me in my life and in my career, on and off the field, was going to Carolina. Seeing the different aspects of life and what other cities are like and how other organizations work. there's more than one way to skin a cat. So success can be bread and sought after in many different ways," Harper, who played in the Super Bowl last season, said. 

As for his former quarterback Cam Newton, Harper said he expects no adjustment in his style of play despite missing last week with a concussion.

" When Cam is in, he's in," Harper emphasized. "He is going to have his design runs; he is going to have his things. He is going to be himself. He can't help that. That's why they probably didn't play him last week. At the end of the day, he has to be himself for that offense to be effective."

Harper said he holds no ill will towards the organization for not bringing him back. He says he knew he was unlikely to return with the emergence of their young safety Tre Boston.

    1st Round TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota St. I went back and forth with two other linebackers and a cornerback in this slot. But in the end, I circled back around to my original selection of Goedert. Tight end is one of the few positions on the Saints roster where a rookie can step and be a major contributor. When watching his tape, I instantly thought Jimmy Graham with his athleticism. His route running may even be more refined than Graham’s was at that stage of his career. ...
