Darren Sharper To Visit Patriots; Return To New Orleans Saints Unlikely

1 of 2

For weeks everyone has been asking the question about if Safety Darren Sharper will return to the New Orleans Saints.  According to a report this evening, this chance is becoming very slim.

According to NFL Reporter Adam Caplan, Sharper is scheduled to make a visit to the New England Patriots along with Safety Renaldo Hill.  Both will participate in a workout.

The market for Sharper has been quiet for the last several weeks and fans have been desperate to find out about the intentions of the Saints in re-signing the veteran player.

Sharper has expressed that he wants a starting role with a team and that job with the Saints already is filled by S Malcolm Jenkins.  Jenkins took over for Sharper while he was recovering from offseason knee surgery last year.

Local analysts have also expressed that they seriously doubt that Sharper returns to the Saints.  While some, including myself, are holding on to hope of his return, it appears that window is rapidly closing.
