Roman Harper received a warm homecoming from the New Orleans Saints yesterday, returning to the team that drafted him in 2006.

While Harper's story drew plenty of headlines among Saints fans, there was one unfortunately reality of Harper's signing for Louisiana Ragin' Cajun fans.

Former All Sun-Belt linebacker Dominique Tovell, who signed as an undrafted free agent with New Orleans after a solid career with the Cajuns, was waived to make room for Harper's roster spot.

The Saints now have nine linebackers on their 90 man training camp roster.
