Short story?
Fans: Yes (pleeease!)
Coaches: Yes, but as a back-up, and a mentor for Jenkins
FO: Np, not for the price he wants

Sharp: Wants to start and wants to get paid, he is currently shopping around teams, but if he can't get both from somewhere, he will come back. He knows we love him here.

Chances of him being re-signed are slim to none. With Chris Reis, Malcolm Jenkins, Roman Harper, Pierson Prioleau, Jonathan Amaya, Paul Oliver, and DeAndre McDaniel already competing...don't see there being much of a shot for Sharper unless he takes next to nothing.

Again...stranger things have happened, but I wouldn't count on it.

Right now, if Harper gets hurt (or winded, in case he has to go all out to chase down a quarterback or something) then Prioleau can step in and take care of business, which he has shown he can do as a quality back up and Special Teamer. On the other side, if (god forbid) something happened to Jenk, then I don't see any of those guys doing a competent job as his backup (maybe Oliver.) Having Sharper back would really shore up the safety position to where we only really need to worry about our OLBs.

Personally, I'd love to see Sharper come back for at least another year. Seems like we are always short on corners and safeties....ugh. Darren plays with heart, and I think he's a very positive leader for the team. Crossing my fingers here.

After week one if Sharper hasn't signed anywhere, Saints will sign him because his salary wouldn't be guaranteed.

By default, meaning injuries, is the only way he gets on the roster.

He isn't even showing on the current roster. I think we have seen him for the last time. I kinda hate that. Wish he could've retired with us.

I wonder if - him not already being signed with another team - has more to do with the salary he is asking for or if it's the uncertainty about his
capabilities after last season... or a combination of the two?
