DARREN SHARPER

Darren Mallory Sharper (don't call me Mallory)
On March 5, 2010, Sharper became an unrestricted free agent, allowing him to sign with another team. However, on May 3, 2010, Sharper re-signed with the Saints for the 2010 season, even though he had micro-fracture arthroscopic surgery on his left knee during the off-season.[8] On September 3rd 2010, Sharper was placed on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list, causing him to miss the first six weeks of the 2010 NFL season.

So basically we get Bush and Sharper back somewhere around The Steeler Game!

Good! I think Jenkins needs more time behind Sharp, before he's going to be ready to be a full time starter at FS.

Lol you're right Saint Paul..I think Jenkins would be a better fit at Strong Safety...they are there more for hitting than coverage...but he'll never see the field because Roman Harper has that locked up

Jenkins just doesn't seem to have the ball instincts, that you need for that position. I'm not saying he won't get them eventually, but for now we really need Sharper back. I predict an immediate impact on our secondary, when 42 is back there.

I can't wait until he comes back. More Sharper Shakes in the endzone, please!

Yep, and so far so good. He's looked very good in two games and good/bad in the Falcons game. He's still learning but he looks like the real deal to me.

I'm hoping we play Jenkins/Sharper about 50/50. Shapers experience and Jenkins talents.

That split could extend Sharpers career another year, and Jenkins absorbs the masters knowledge for another year. Jenkins will be a pro-bowl FS in 2 more years.

We'll probably see a lot of 3 safety nickle packages too, since Jenkins can cover so well.
