Every time a player from an NFL team is released, I hear an uproar that the Dolphins should bring the guy in.
Players like Henderson, Ken Hamlin, Torry Holt, Adalius Thomas, and even softy "Barbie" Carpenter lmao... all irrelevant.
Then there is... Darren Sharper the only relevant free agent out there the Dolphins need to pursue! Watch what I tell you guys, the Dolphins will sign this man. Not only will he be signed but he will be the next best off-season move after acquiring Brandon Marshall. Sharper is extremely experienced and will also help develop our very young secondary. He would be a perfect leader along with Dansby for our defense. I still cannot believe that the Saints have not locked him up already! I know he is one year older, but ARE YOU SERIOUS? This man is one of the main reasons the Saints went to the Super Bowl and turned that defense around.
On October 4, 2009, Sharper returned an interception 99 yards for a touchdown, the longest in Saints history. It was also his second 95+ yard interception return for a touchdown for the season. On October 25, Sharper returned his third interception for a touchdown on the season, a team record. At the end of Week 8, on Monday Night Football, Sharper intercepted a pass from Atlanta's Matt Ryan to help keep the Saints' perfect record. It was his seventh interception of the season. On November 30, once again on Monday Night Football, Sharper intercepted a desperation pass from New England's Tom Brady and returned it 35 yards, which would have left him 4 yards short of the NFL record for interception return yards in a season, set by Baltimore's Ed Reed in 2004, but the interception was called back due to a penalty.
Sharper then broke that record in a December 27 game against Tampa Bay, intercepting Josh Freeman's pass and returning it 21 yards. This gave him 9 interceptions on the year and 376 return yards (including 3 interceptions returned for touchdowns). It was the 63rd interception of Sharper's NFL career, tying him for sixth on the all-time list. The following week, Sharper was selected for his 5th Pro Bowl. His 376 interception return yards broke the NFL single season record of 358 previously held by Ed Reed.
Sharper also shares an NFL record with Deion Sanders for most games with 50+ interception return yards (9) and owns the NFL record for most games with 75+ interception return yards (6).
Miami DO NOT waste any more time and please sign this man!
