Former New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper to cover team for local station

2 of 3

His presence could be seen this past season at almost all of the games on the sidelines where he mingled with players and could be seen giving advice and going over and speaking with the secondary unit.

This led me to think that Sharper could possibly have a future in coaching and to be more specific, maybe a coach or assistant to the staff for the Saints secondary.

Now Sharper will be giving advice and tips, but it will be to the New Orleans viewing area in what he said will be “in-depth, up close and personal interviews” as he covers the Saints for WWL-TV.

A wise move on the station’s part because of how media gun-shy players might be especially after filmmaker Sean Pamphilon’s secret recording of  former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams now infamous pregame speech.

NFL players, especially Saints players, might be more wary to speak with media on how they will spin things.  But the team won’t have to worry about that from Sharper.
