Sharper leaves Jacksonville without deal

It seems likely that safety Darren Sharper is asking for too much money. Sharper had nine interceptions and three touchdowns last season, but he turns 35 in November. It isn't likely a team is going to invest long term in him. He, on the other hand, likely is looking for one last payday. It isn't out there... yet anyway, or he would have signed already.

Sharper visited Jacksonville, but he left there Thursday without a contract, according to NFL Network. It tells me the money wasn't enough to convince him to sign with the Jaguars, and he'll keep looking. There have been rumors he's interested in Dallas, and the Cowboys definitely could be interested if his price comes down. All things ($$$) being equal, however, look for him to return to New Orleans. He and the Saints were a match made in football heaven.

I know it is easy for me to spend Jerry's money for him, but I say sign Sharper if you want to go back to the SB. This is an uncapped year so Jerry could do it without hurting his other big ticket signings (Miles Austin, Dez, etc.). Safety and left tackle were our big needs going into the draft, and they still are.

if Dallas was smart they would pay him. we haven't had a safety back there worth a damn since Darren Woodson in his prime. Sharper at age 34/35 is FAR better than anyone i've seen constantly out of position and giving up the big play in our secondary since then.
