I'm kinda iffy on having Wong take over for Sharper...When he played at ILB last preseason (can't remember if he was playing mac or buc) he looked lost out there...He has the coverage ability and rushing ability, but I'm still unsure of him versus the run...I think Wong will probably not get resigned after next season, though, and we should draft an ILB and have him waiting in the wings if Wong isn't brought back...

he always seemed like a sure tackler versus the run to me,never thought that was much of a weakness. and wong is very good in coverage.

I thought for sure Greenwood would play the Buc...His strengths seem to suit that position better, but who knows...That's what camp is for...

-- Sharper Visits Bengals --
Thu Apr 7, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

The Cincinnati Bengals official website reports the agent for former Texans LB Jamie Sharper confirmed on Wednesday night his client's visit to Cincinnati. Tony Agnone, who has yet to delve into deep negotiations with the Bengals, said Sharper also plans to meet with club officials Thursday at Paul Brown Stadium before joining Agnone in Seattle for a visit with the Seahawks. He's also talking to Jacksonville, Baltimore, and "he has other options," Agnone said.



I wonder what those "other options" are.

if hes goes to Jacksonville.. we need to make sure we draft a Cedric Benson or Eric Shelton type of RB. Someone we can put in there to run his butt over.

Actually, Jacksonville has the most cap room available out of all of the teams who are interested in Jamie, like a little over $11 million, so if he signs with the team who offers him the most money, it could very likely be Jacksonville if they want him bad enough and are willing to show him the money. I was over at the Seahawks MB a few minutes ago and someone over there sai there are only like $1 mil under the cap right now...

No, I was thinking more of the lines of the Pats, which would still be a complete longshot.

Not if Bruschi doesn't return for the '05 season. And not if Jamie is more concerned with a shot at winning it all and not money...

He could have visions of winning it all again with the Ravens too. Guess we'll see pretty soon where he lands.

keep it going Hit Em Up let em know how it belong :woot . People round here actin like they just broke up with a loved one. I liked the guy too and the hard work he put in, but hey its also a business and you gotta expect things to come like this. I just hope we get some real good production out of the replacements we have and will require.

well i dont see how the front office is not to blame, they didnt wanna pay him the money he deserved to get so they gave him an option, seek a trade or be released. I dont see how that doesnt involve the front office,,,,so i think they are to fully blame. But with saying that i do think his production was on a decline and it'll be good to get some young blood at the LB position IMO !

While I think Sharper is a very good LB and was great for the Texans the 1st two years, he did not deserve to be paid like Ray Lewis. Something for folks to remember in this, the Texans didn't negotiate this contract with Sharper--this was a contract taken over in the expansion draft. The reports from both sides were the Texans and Sharper wanted to work out an extension so both sides (a) wanted to stay together (b) thought Sharper was still productive and (c) fit the system fine--they obviously disagreed on the amount and/or length of the contract. We will never know whether Sharper was demanding fair market value and the Texans weren't paying it or the Texans were offering fmv and Sharper wouldn't take it. IMO the only question in the deal is whether it was smart to release him now or say goodbye after this season.
