Tweets from Loomis Pre-Draft Presser

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; LINK Hope Sharper is reading this too. Seems ol' Mickey ain't budging: Loomis on Sharper. "We have a specific idea of what we want to pay Darren. If another team offers big contract, i'll be happy for him."...

Re: Tweets from Loomis Pre-Draft Presser

This one scares me

Even without Sharper signed, doesn't consider safety a "must" need in draft. Likes Usama Young and could move CB Malcolm Jenkins

I think Sharper is the one playing the really dangerous game. If he waits too long, Loomis may withdraw the contract offer that has been on the table since March. Sharper then may have to sign with a team offering no more than $1.8-2 million for one season. Rumor is Loomis' offer is for two years at @ $7 million total, or $3.5 million/year. It isn't $6.445 million for one year that the franchise tag would have gotten Sharper, but it's likely more than any other team would be willing to pay him.

Re: Tweets from Loomis Pre-Draft Presser

Honestly, Sharper will probably resign with us after the draft. Until then I wouldn't expect anything to happen.

Re: Tweets from Loomis Pre-Draft Presser

Loomis is all business. I like it. I like him, he's good at what he does, and in this case, I think he's right.... there is nothing more you can do but to offer what you feel is a fair deal and sit on your hands. I don't blame him.

I hope Sharper doesn't get a better offer, but I really feel he isn't going to... for two reasons: He want's a LOT of money and pretty much concluded his outing with the Saints banged up and slowed up. If the 7 million / 2 year deal is true, I think that's about right for both sides. Sharper should jump on that, shut up and see you back in the B&G nation. If not, he might as well, start shopping for suits and get a head start on the inevitable career in broadcasting awaiting him.

He's too close to topping record books in some nice categories. I sure the hell would like to see those records set w/ him in B&G.

On another note though.... what the heck is Loomis doing posting his business on Twitter? That's just a little weird. Is he the only GM posting his thoughts on contracts? Of course we like to know the status, we like to read it, the media is pressing for gossips sakes... but Loomis seems very tight lipped / all business. It just seems bizarre that he's taking his game to twitter.

Re: Tweets from Loomis Pre-Draft Presser

The draft next week is probably got him a little nervous.

Sharper runs the risk of us drafting another Safety, since we aren't sure he'll be back. Not to mention other teams in need of safety help may find it in the draft, leaving him few contending teams interested.
