Actually releasing Sharper would result in freeing up $4.75 mil of cap space--$6.1 mil cap charge if retained-$1.325 of remaining prorated signing bonus. Personally I don't think allowing him to look for a trade means he will be released if no trade is forthcoming, but it does free up a sizeable piece of cap room.

I think he will be a draft day trade. I would like to keep him, but the benefit-cost does not seem to match to the Texans. So I hope we get some kind of compensation.

Default Help me understand why they want to trade Sharper.

They can't be dissappointed in his performance. We need more production out of the rest the linebackers. Now they have signed few linebackes paired with Peek should increase production out of the rest the linebackes. However the additional performance will be nullified when they remove Sharper. The Texans are not is salary cap hell or anything. I just do not understand why they are begging to get rid of him?

He's on the wrongside of 30 and has lost a step...We want to add speed to our LB corps and Sharper, while still solid against the run, Sharper's coverage skills may wane as he gets older...He's been good while he's been here, there's no denying that, but it just seems like the organization wants to go in a separate direction...

The fact of the matter is he has said he does not want to be here next season. He wants to either be released or traded. He has said this in interviews.

Now.. is he just saying that and doesnt really feel that way? I dont know.. but personally id rather find someone who will take him for a 3rd or 4th rounder.. even a 5th rounder. Get something for him now because we will lose him anyway next season and I think we can get by without him this season.

What is with all of the people saying "KEEP JAMIE"...if he does not want to play here why would we want him here. Fact is we will probably get next to nothing for him and that is IF we don't have to release him...

I'll say this.. year 4 the Texans want to reach the playoffs.. If we don't have an equal or upgrade of Jamie Sharper (which I don't think has slipped as far as most people make out ..not like Walker)...sharper stays... It isn't like we are in Cap Hades here.. esp for one more year.. Yes, I don't wan't to see him leave for nothing.. We find a decent trade for him this year... I think we trade him..if not he stays.. I will be suprised if we just release him. Maybe he said he doesn't want to be here.. but he still works for the Texans and not vice versa.
and I think he has enough professionalism not to "dog it" this season

I agree I hate to see him go, he has been here since the beginning and always seems to give 110%, but I am having doubts he will be with us next season..

one thing to think about is this...If Sharper stays, he might have his best year. The reason why I say this is because he will be an UFA after next season and most vets seem to have their best seasons in contract years. The better they do in a contract year, the more options they will have and the more teams that will be interested in them.

And professionalism aside, his last season here would be a job interview for his last NFL contract. Keep him and disgruntled or not he will play to his best ability because it is for his last pay day.

He may not want to, but if he has to then I think he will play his heart out.

On a side note, I was watching Local 2 last night and they were showing the guys working out, except one. Guess Jamie refuses to work out now.

May have to just break down and pay that $6 to get on his website. If nothing else to send him an email and ask WTF?

Walker cost a lot of money and he is really on the downside of his career, I mean when was the last time he led us in something. Yeah I forgot too. I like Sharper, but if he can be used to go up in the second and grab a quality interior LINEMAN or LB. That might be worth it. Naw it likely would not pay off for another 2 years.

Why would you guys want to trade Jaime Sharper? Why only a 3rd?

to recap.

hes 6 million against the cap

hes 31 years old

this is the last year he is under contract and he will be an FA next season

if we dont trade him this offseason, he will not be resigned next season and we wont get anything for him

we are rebuilding our LBs to gain more speed and pass rush capability

he doesnt want to play here anymore

Does anyone know what the cap # for a franchise tagged LB is?

I know it's unlikely, but if we keep Sharper and he plays well next year, we could always tag him and maintain our leverage we have with him...
