I'm not really sure of any time frame, but I would imagine that if they can't get something worked out around draft time they might begin to get a little frustrated with Sharper and his agent. It seems this sort of ploy is becoming a trend in the NFL. I read in an ESPN article that there were somewhere around half a dozen veteran players given permission to seek trades. That same article said that the Jaguars gave permission to Donovan Darrius to seek a trade as well. Apparently Detroit was interested in him, but after signing Kennoy Kennedy I assume that interest isn't as strong. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that Jamie might get traded if he really wants out of Houston, but I think he's got a very good chance of being with this team on opening day.
*edit* Here's a link to that ESPN article.ESPN
It's a good read.
