Less than a month ago Darren Sharper was euphoric as he rode through the streets of New Orleans during the epic Dat Tuesday victory celebration.
Yesterday he was merry. Today he is miffed.
Sharper wasn’t happy with the Saints’ decision to forgo the franchise tag option and allow him to test the free agent market this offseason.
He told the NFL.com’s Steve Wyche, “They said they want me back, but if you want someone back, why are you going to let them test the market? I don’t know how much they want me back if they’re allowing other teams to bid for my services. Being in this situation before, if a team is willing to let you test the market they’re more willing to let you go.”
Welcome to the new NFL, Darren. It’s the owners’ world. You just play in it.
