Former Saints Safety Sharper Hints That He’s Done With Football

Free-agent safety Darren Sharper was on the Saints’ sideline for their 27-16 victory over the Buccaneers on Sunday, but the street clothes he wore while catching up with his former team will be the ones he’ll continue to wear. Though Sharper, 36, didn’t say he was officially retired, he told me he has moved on with his post-football life and embarked on a path he hopes leads to a broadcasting career.

Following a spectacular 2009 season in which he had nine interceptions during the Saints’ Super Bowl championship run, Sharper had knee surgery that limited him to just eight games in 2010 after he signed a one-year contract to stay in New Orleans.
