I think he'll resign. He's sure on Twitter talking like he is. He even said "let's look forward to repeating."

re: Darren Sharper franchise?

Like all key players on a Super Bowl Champion team, he will get some interest. However, considering his age, I don't think he will strike a big deal on the open market. I do believe he will get a good deal from the Saints, probably in the area of a 2 years with some kind of 3rd year option.

I believe that he'll stay in N. O. He couldn't be in a better system than he's in now. Also, Payton and GW understand how to get the most out of him. They rest him from practice pretty often during the season and I think he's been pretty healthy for someone his age. Let's hope it carries into next season as well. Loomis is smart enough to know what an integral part he is and will get a deal done I'm sure.

Sharper wants another shot at the Super Bowl.

Where is going to go?

He is a Saint. He wants to remain a Saint, is my guess.
Great way to end a career... Two Dat, Three Dat? Four Dat!? A dollar!

All who thinks Sharper should stay, stand up and holla.

Repeat, repeat, repeat!

I heard today that they will probably tag him.For somewhere in the range of six and half million dollars.He should be happy with that considering he made just over one million this year.Oh and he got that Champonship as well.

re: Darren Sharper franchise?

Rotoworld reported we'll probably tag him... and maybe try to work out a 2-3 year deal. If we can't, then at least we'll have him for another season. He is going to be 35... so the tag is probably the best way to go. With that said, if he retires and does not become an analyst, I'd love to have him on the staff.
