What Danno meant was that if Sharper is re-signed, then chances are he will take the spot of one of the younger ST oriented safeties, and because he can't/shouldn't play ST, then it would be a hit to our special teams trying to fill that spot.

Sharper is a year removed from his surgery & he will be a great mentor for the younger players. 09 was a fluke for Sharper - we all know it & so does he!

Interesting .... I think Sharper hangs around until an injury happens .... then he takes a roster spot.

09? A fluke? It was definitely above his typical output, but IIRC, Sharper is the active leader in interceptions and has more than almost anybody in NFL history.

He's a baller, just old. I trust the FO to do the right thing with him, they know more about his level of play than I do. I will admit that we are dangerously thin at safety. Besides Jenkins and Harper, who do we have?

Not to mention Gregg Williams wasn't afraid to use him like he should be used, roaming around the back field chasing the ball down. Before he got here he was pretty much in 2-deep zones and man coverage, which offenses learned how to play around him. Then of course last year he was hurt.
Sharper probably has a good 2 years left in the tank, but the Saints obviously want Jenkins to start sooner rather than later, because if he signs somewhere else to start and we have Sharper, then we are screwed in 2014 or 2015 when he is retiring or declining.

We signed a versatile safety from San Diego Paul Oliver. He's basically the equivalent of Usama Young, but a bit more developed. He started 8 games last year.

We also still have Prioleaux, Amaya, Isa, and McDaniel.
