If only the Saints had shown safety Darren Sharper some love, then he wouldn’t be a free agent right now. At least that’s what he essentially told The Times-Picayune of New Orleans on Wednesday.
The report notes that Sharper admits had the team shown him “enough love” with their early contract offers, then he’d already be a Saint. He settled last year for a one-year, $1.7 million contract to play in New Orleans. But given that Sharper, 34, tied for the NFL lead with nine interceptions and was an integral part to New Orleans’ first Super Bowl championship, he’s expecting more years and more money, even at his age.
Sharper projects he still has “two to three good years” left in him.
