Default A Certain 9 Interception/3 Touchdown Player is Still Available



What's the hold up? Apparently he hasn't been able to make visits because of his minor knee surgery which prevents him from flying, but will be making trips soon. But why no rumors on where he could be headed? He says that the Saints haven't shown him enough "love" (money).

Quote:
Sharper hasn't ruled out a return to the Saints, but he did admit that if the Saints had shown him enough love with their early contract offers, he wouldn't be a free agent right now.

"If the love was right, that would have been taken care of. The love would have been reciprocated," said Sharper, who settled for a one-year, $1.7 million contract in New Orleans last year but expects more years and dollars this time around after his All-Pro season with nine interceptions and three touchdown returns.

He also said that his top priority is to go to a team that has a chance to win:

Quote:
Sharper said above all else, the chance to win is his top priority - especially after winning his first Super Bowl in his 13th season with the Saints.

"Winning is the most important thing," he said. "The enjoyment I had winning a Super Bowl, that something you appreciate more than anything. A big part of your enjoyment comes from playing winning football. So you've got to make that the top priority."

Presumably that means Sharper wouldn't leave New Orleans for just anybody. But there are plenty of teams with a chance to win and a hole at safety.

What about replacing Kherry Rhodes in NY? He's also said he'd love to play for Lovie Smith, but doesn't want to return to the cover 2 defense. San Diego maybe?

Age, Money, Health. He says he cares about winning but its obvious he will use the season he had and try to get paid. He took the 1yr deal with N.O because not many cared for his services. He cant tell me after the numbers he put up he wont be lookin to get a significant pay increase. Teams rather go younger, healthier where the decline isnt around the corner as it is with Sharper. Minor knee surgery or not, its still a surgery for someone up in age.

Teams will let Darren sit until after the draft. Then decide.

He's rehabbing from knee surgery which has prevented him from making any visits. He'll most likely end up with the Saints.

The Bolts could use him, no doubt. But for the last couple of years they´be been known for getting their players through the draft, not free agency.
