If we would need to find him a position to play, it'd probably be as the FS while moving Jenkins to SS, which again would not be ideal.

There simply isn't a starting spot for him in the Saints' roster, barring any injuries. I wouldn't mind seeing him as a backup and a mentor to the younger players, but it would have to be with a discount because he doesn't contribute to the special teams.
This is a joke, right?

It isn't actually. Sharper struggled at SS(as a Viking) when he was moved there full time and flourished when he returned to FS as a Saint. Can he play SS? Sure... but he has a Pro Bowler in front of him blocking his path. If healthy, and we when feel he's can help us, I definitely think we should bring him in. We do a lot of 4-2-5 and 3-3-5 sets also... Jenkins can play anywhere and there would be plenty of snaps for everyone.

Some of the better pass defense days was With Sharper at Free Safety and Jenkins at Strong Safety last season...

this thread is a joke. finley had 3 catches...only 3 catches the entire game. the rookie wideout ran an underneath route when harper was playing a deep zone.

when did harper play poorly? what exactly has he done to warrant all this hate?

nothing

you guys just dont know why we lose or what goes wrong on certain plays so you find someone to blame. danno is right...its ignorance
