Sharper "Not feeling the love" from Saints

Sharper isn't feeling the love from the Saints
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 10, 2010 3:40 PM ET
Darren Sharper wants to return to the Saints; he's just not feeling the love yet.

"If the love was right, that would have been taken care of. The love would have been reciprocated," said Sharper to Mike Triplette of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Sharper plans to make some free agent visits in a week or two, when his surgically repaired knee has healed. He speculated that he might be a good fit with the Jets.

"The New York teams, there's something about the big lights and the big city that fits me, and I know I would fit there," Sharper said.

The 34-year-old wants a pay hike from his $1.7 million contract. But the Saints are wisely unwilling to break the bank for an older player, just like they were with Scott Fujita.

Sharper says he plans to play for a few more years and uses Rod Woodson as an example of someone that played outstanding well into his mid-thirties.

I watched Rod Woodson. I played Tecmo Super Bowl as Rod Woodson. Sorry Darren, you are no Rod Woodson.

Re: Sharper "Not feeling the love" from Saints

This is getting old, sign him or let him walk. Seems like someone wants to bite the hand that fed them last offseason

Re: Sharper "Not feeling the love" from Saints

The drama is always played out this way....the player never understands, the team doesn't want to talk about it. I do believe he will get more than the 1.7 million but it is anyones guess as to how much more.

Sharper needs to remember he's a one (but good) trick pony that fits into certain schemes. He's had a great career but he's at the end of it. As far as not showing the love. We signed him when no one else would and he got a Ring out if it.
