Sharper may sign deal soon?

Just thought I would pass this along. I don't trust PFT all that much so take it for what its worth.



As we look toward another week of the offseason with a dwindling supply of unrestricted free agents (but never a dwindling supply of news and rumors), one of the biggest remaining names on the market could have a job very soon.

Actually, he could have a job as soon as Monday.

Safety Darren Sharper, we're told, is closing in on closing a deal. His destination isn't known, and it's unclear whether he has even made a tentative decision. But it's our understanding that he'll soon be making a selection from his pool of available suitors, whoever they may be.

The Saints have an offer on the table for Sharper, who joined the team in 2009 and helped propel the franchise to its first-ever Super Bowl win. He also has visited the Jaguars.

He has expressed interest in joining the Jets, but they can't sign him in the near future unless and until another one of the team's unrestricted free agents signs with a new franchise.

From what I heard, he walked away from Jacksonville's offer after almost laughing in their faces because their offer wasn't even close to what the Saints already offered him.

Based on that info, and now this info, it stands to reason that his only logical choice between the only two suitors he has up to this point, the Saints and the Jaguars, would be New Orleans.

Am I right?

I guess we should find out something more definitive on Monday...

PFT actually doesn't have the crap they had a few years back, they are usually dead on these days. Yeah, from all indications it looks like Sharper will be back with the Saints. I just don't see him going anywhere else at this point. Jets cannot sign him just yet, Jaguars gave him a low offer, Cowboys said they are not interested (could be a smoke screen), really has to be the Saints at this point.

Hey, with our luck lately, I will say it will be the Saints. Why not?

PFT is still football rumor central though, don't kid yourselves about that one in the slightest. That Florio ****** is the biggest, most blatant Vizqueens lover and Saints hater on the face of this planet and he's love nothing more than to stir up crappy untruth's about this and every other subject that might matter in the slightest to Saints fans, especially when the news media is so hungry for anything to report on...

Well... he was seen at the Kentucky Derby today .... perhaps he placed a bet to make a decision?
