Report says Saints will franchise safety Darren Sharper

ProFootballTalk.com reports today that it appears more and more that the Saints will franchise safety Darren Sharper:

We pointed out yesterday, tongue partially in cheek, the existence of a conflict between two of the many ESPN employees who report on all things NFL regarding whether the Saints will apply the franchise tag to safety Darren Sharper.

Len Pasquarelli says they won’t, and Adam Schefter says they might.

Now, Steve Wyche of NFL.com (one of the truly great guys we met during Super Bowl week) resolves the dispute.

Wyche said on Monday night’s edition of NFL Network’s Total Access (here’s the video, via NFL.com) that the Saints will apply the franchise tag to Sharper.

It means that Sharper will be tendered a one-year contract with a guaranteed salary of $6.445 million, if/when he accepts the franchise tender.
