Payton said there are three options for both;

1. put them on the 53 man roster
2. PUP
3. Waive

I do not see #1 happening as the Saints would be on the "hook" for their entire salary for the year if they go on the 53 for week one. Plus they take up two roster spots from "HEALTHY" players.

This leaves #2 and #3.

#2 PUP, shelves them for six weeks into the schedule...with no guarantee. Pay their salaries for six weeks with no assurances they can get on the field.

#3 Waivers. Payton is not very subtle. This may very well be the only option at this point. They could resign both at any point after the first game and not be on the "hook" for their annual salary. Plus, who is going to claim two gimpy legged players?

Anybody else with a half glass viewpoint?
Who cares? If they aren't healthy then they cant play, and why would we want them anyway? Go with the better options of healthy players. They will probably just roll the dice on someone else not signing them and cut them in hopes of picking them up later in the year. Im about over Sharper anyway.

Sharper will suit up but if we get way behind because the back field keeps blowing coverages and allow 2 to 3 touchdowns from the middle then number 42 will have to come in,,no way will he sit there and watch it keep going..Coach will probably let him in.

"Im about over Sharper anyway."

Hey 504State - WHY??

I don't think he will have a season like last year - BUT - As a player he has a wealth of knowledge & leadership that we need.

Sharper playing on opening nite would be great but as long as we have Tracy Porter and Jabari Greer out there, the rest of the defensive backfield will be just fine. After all GW says "I look a lot smarter with Tracy Porter and Jabari Greer on the field"
