this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Loomis said tonight that he won't give out his plans on Sharper just yet, so who knows where ESPN got their info.... once again just guessing and seeing what sticks, what's new for them...

respectfully disagree, COMPLETELY. I like this move by the FO - No tag, offer him a sensible 2-3 year deal. If he doesn't want it he walks. I think he will take it however. But he isn't worth 6 mil.

Source: New Orleans Saints won't place franchise tag on Darren Sharper - ESPN

6 million over three years maybe ... but one year?

Re: Shefter: Saints won't tag Sharper

The New Orleans Saints will not place their franchise tag on Pro Bowl safety Darren Sharper, a source close to the situation said Monday.

NFC South blog
ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas writes about all things NFC South in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation

The Saints have decided to allow Sharper to test the free-agent market, though they will try to re-sign him. The 34-year-old is expected to be the top free-agent safety available.

A 13-year veteran, Sharper was essential to the Saints' Super Bowl title. He tied for the most interceptions in the NFL in 2009 (nine) and returned three for touchdowns.

ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli initially reported the Saints would not franchise Sharper. If the Saints had franchised Sharper, he would have been assured of making $6.45 million in 2010.

Sharper signed a one-year, $1.7 million deal last spring.

Agree with Psycho here-- our defensive backfield is getting expensive, and Sharper showed signs of wear and tear LAST year. What can we expect in 2010?

I'd love to have him, but with 23 other FA's to worry about, we can't afford anything over $4.5 mill

Luckily it's an ESPN story, so it's gotta be at least half wrong.
