Shefter: Saints won't tag Sharper

He just tweeted this confirming an earlier story by Len P. I really want to keep Sharper but I suppose the team feels this wasn't the best way to go about it. He seems to want to stay and I'm guessing they can keep him for less than the franchise amount.

Hopefully they will work something out, but I dont think the tag is needed. I think they want him back, and he wants to be back. They will get something done.

Re: Shefter: Saints won't tag Sharper

Bad news to hear, that would of been the easiest way to bring him back but maybe Loomis can come up with a deal that helps out both sides which keeps Sharper but doesn't break the bank for us even though it is an uncapped year, Saints have alot of guys to sign so we'll see how this plays itself out

Well if he signs with another team, then Loomis is going to look like a jackass. You can't let him walk for nothing. You can't give him a three year deal because of his age. Maybe they have a two year deal already worked out under the table. I hope that is the case.

Re: Shefter: Saints won't tag Sharper

We fans need to realize Sharper is a great ball hawk but that's it. He's not worth the 6 mil franchise tag. Not even in an uncapped year. His run support/tackling is under par. I'm not just saying that either, if you watch the games from this year he wiffs on tackles quite often. in the SB Addai made him look silly more than once.

Harper is good at these things, yes, but for Ed Reed/ Troy P money you need to be able to do everything. And that's the kind of money he would get with a franchise tag.

I hope he stays. Hopefully Loomis and Sharper will work something out to keep him for at least one more year.

Dude you've lost your mind. Sharper finished 3rd in Defensive player of the year honors. THIRD! He led the league in Interceptions, Interceptions returned for TD's and INT Return yds. I watched every game this year and the thing that impressed me most was how vicious his fills were against the run. I think he is absolutely worth the $6MM ESPECIALLY with no salary cap in place.

If he is worth 6m then bush is worth 8m.

Re: Shefter: Saints won't tag Sharper

I'd say they are worth about the same. $6MM sounds about right for both. About 5% each of what the salary cap would have been.
