Also, if we get nothing for him, then he might as well be released after this season. At least we would retain some stability in the LB corps.

It's really tough to accept the fact that Sharper won't be a Texan next season, but it does make for a very interesting offseason and training camp. For all those who would love to see Peek on the field more they may jsut get their wish. He might even see time at the ILB position in training camp, although I must confess I'd rather see him outside rushing the QB. This is really leaving a lot of spots up in the air, and it will be very interesting to see what happens. I just hope having players in new positions next season won't play out as badly as having players in new positions on the OLine played out last season.

I just opened ESPN's home page and saw a bold text link that says Sharper cut

That would be Darren Sharper.

well im not saying it is set in stone.. but when sharper started talking about it.. and the chronicle started talking about it.. and that jerkweed on ESPN started talking about it.. I have started to get a little worried that we wont get anything and will end up releasing him.

but if anyone can squeeze a pick out of someone, its Casserly.

For sentimental reasons I am sad to see this taking place, Sharper has been the cornerstone of this defense, and it will be hard to not see him out there.

However, I do believe that this move is being done to make this defense better. We started with nothing and Sharper was a major player for us that was solid and consistent. As this team grows, the changes should be upgrades. I’m sure that as hard as this change is, it is for the best. The front office is making a move that they feel will make this team better, not worse. Sharper is good, and is the face of our defense, but does that mean we don’t go after anyone better just so our face stays the same?

We were 7-9 last year; I for one don’t want to stay the same.

well it will be different and sad not to see sharper out there...i'm just sorry this whole thing is ending the way it is...and i know people say it's a business and the gm's don't care what the fans think but you know what they should...the fans are the ones who pay the tickets, buy the jerseys, and support the team...without us there is no team...that being sad i understand why moving sharper on is must...peek needs to be a starter on this defense and with greenwood signing there would be no room for peek...with sharper out that moves wong inside (even though they deny it you know it's gonna happen) and peek will take over the starting ROLB position...i think if peek can stay healthy and in capers good graces he could end the season with 10+ sacks and be the pass rusher we've lacked over the past few seasons...greenwood will provide solid pass coverage...wong will be the run stopper in the middle...and babin will continue to improve and be a strong link in our linebacking corp

back ups will probably be charlie anderson who i think can be solid rotational guy for us...deshon polk proved his worth this past season...i don't see foreman being with us anymore and i can honestly say i'm not sad to see him go...shantee orr i believe will be the second back up to the OLB'ers...as for the other inside guy i believe he will come in the draft...preferably barret ruud or lance mitchell on my side of things...but i hope sharper goes to the bengals to be re-united with marvin lewis...i have nothing but respect for jamie sharper and i wish him the best

i almost cant wait to see what happens. i always like trade talk and rumors. it keeps me interested during the offseason. i dont care what we do or what path we take, as long as the LB group is better than last yrs. i guess its a lock that foreman will be dealt or released. as for sharper, who knows. i do wanna see peek hitting the QB more....its awesome

I still think our DL and OL are more of a problem than our LB's.

Default Sharper Question - Saints Fan

I have heard a rumor that sharper has been traded for a 4th round pick and a player.(probably Tebucky Jones or Kenny Smith) Have you guys heard anything about this?

Thanks and good luck this year.

I've heard and seen this rumor. Where did you hear it from originally? I'm trying to find out if it started in the New Orleans media or if it is just some message board thing. Help me out if you could please. We generally wipe all ridiculous rumors around here (if you state a rumor as a fact it will get hammered) but I have seen this and have been emailed about this from a couple of people so I am going ot answer it here as so it doesn't pop up multiple times.

On the saintsreport board they said Haslett stated that he is not interested in either Sharper.

I think I found where it started....

http://whodatzone.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=3543
Quote:
Texans SHarper was told to look for a trade. Apparently Sharper is not getting the Texans what they want. He is demanding to be let go. It seems the Saints, Cheifs, Broncos and Cardinals are interested. According to local radio the Saints made the best trade offer. He would have to redo his current contract to get the deal done. The Saints are giving a player and a 4th round pick for him. Sharper refused to give trade talk info out. He says his agent is in charge of that.

We will have to wait and see.

WSF

------------

Everything i'm hearing is on the radio. It seems many are reporting all kinds of things. The Saints seem to be logical to some. Many radio broadcasters seem to think a trade would leave Sharper with not much choice.

As far as who the trade is, I would expect some rookie or 2nd year player because of value. The Texans love draft picks. Could it be Henderson? The Texans are looking for another speedy WR!

I will try to find some links on this...

ESPN's - Clayton also has a few hits on articles about Jaime for us mentioning picks and trades with Cincy or Seattle

Sharper drawing interest
There seems to be trade interest in Texans inside linebacker Jamie Sharper. The Bengals and Seahawks are among the teams most interested. It will cost a middle round choice -- possibly a fourth -- to get Sharper, who is being replaced by Morlon Greenwood.

you know i'm wondering if sharper can control who he is traded to because there is no doubt in my mind he wants to go to the bengals to re-join marvin lewis...if he can't i don't see a problem with a trade to the saints...right now i just want this deal done so we can move on

The best control he has is whether he will adjust his contract or not. If he is willing to redo his contract someone will pick him up, but if he is willing to do a reasonable contract, he would be here anyway unless he is just ticked off and wants out of Houston..

He can't, because he still has 1 year remaining on his contract. The problem is, how much will the Texans get in return from a team that Sharper won't extend with? It would amount to renting an unhappy Sharper for a season. The Texans don't want a unhappy Sharper, why would another team? He has to go to a team that he chooses to get any value in return.

Unless we off a sweet deal to Sharper he's as good as gone. So much negativity can be whiped out in a heartbeat with lucrative contract, but I feel that that is not going to happen. We are about to lose one our best defensive players so we better get something good in return. He may have spouted off at the end of the season last year, but this could be the start of a trend in the locker room. Once you start losing guys motivation to play for you it's all over. Pressure sure is mounting on this staff to succeed this year.

He apparently wasn't one of the best defensive players last season, as concluded in the team meetings. And they also must have concluded that he wasn't worth the cap hit this year. Since I'm on the outside looking in, I'll have to put my faith in that they know what is going on, and I don't.
