Default Maybe we will get something for Sharper now.

With the compensatory picks handed out (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=1771484) and the Bengals getting a 3rd rounder.. maybe this will highten their interest in sharper and make them more likely to give us that 3rd or 4th rounder for him.

just a thought

Cincy doesn't have a compensatory pick, but Seattle does ...

Weren't they rumored to be interested in Sharper?

You cannot trade those picks. You have to use them.

Yes, but that could make them more likely to trade an original pick if they know they'll still have a 3rd at some point.

I just hope that we can work out a way to keep the guy . He has been the most consistent defensive player we have had .

I was hoping he would shop around and start to realize the Texans long-term offer was not that far off-base. Sharper has one more year on the contract. Six possible scenarios.

1. He is traded and we get some value
2. He is released and we get nothing.
3. He plays well for us next year (contract year) and gets a big contract from us.
4. He plays well and signs with another team the following year
5. He plays poorly next year and we resign him to a contract that reflects his current play.
6. He plays poorly next year and we don't resign.

The way I see it is we have a 50/50 chance of getting something.

Default sharper trade....

To me it's better to trade or release a guy after he already knows how much you want, need, or will pay for him. Jamie has never been labeled a locker room disruption by anybody, but when it comes down to $$$, power, & respect, it has a way of ruffling a mans' feathers! UNLESS HIS CHARACTER IS UNREAL!

I wouldn't mind keeoing him for another year, but I still think it's likely that he'll be included in a draft day deal (either for a third rounder or packaged with our second rounder to move back up into the first)...

I just hope we don't release him, because I have a horrible fear he might end up at Indy. Freeney+Sharper=a defense of sorts. Not what we want.

Your fears won't be realized...Indy doesn't have the money to sign Sharper if we released him (unless Jamie was just Hell-bent on playing for them and took the vet minimum)...

If we let Sharper go we would have a bunch of cash under the cap right. I saw how the Vikings found a loophole in the system where they gave a guy an incentive worth millions that he could never reach and since he didn't get it that amount of money went towards this years cap. That's partly how I think they had $31 mil to sign guys with. Pretty slick maybe since we are probably another year away from making a championship run we could do something similar and sign a huge free agent next year that could put us over the top and count a chunk of his signing bonus against next year's cap if we wanted to and avoid cap trouble down the road. Sound like a decent idea or did I read something way wrong?

The Vikings are known for their "bogus" bonuses.

Just curious, but why does every one of your posts have at least one exclamation point in it?

Oh, and IMO the chance of Jamie Sharper still being a Houston Texan on the night of 4/23/2005 is about 1/100...Anyone care to take bets?

all i know is that we wont release him, it would be a huge hit against us in the cap, and we would get nothin except losing one of our best defenders. i dont want him to go, but if he does, then get something, anything for him
