Post Pack's safety Sharper could be available
Here is one of the stories I am working on for the Top Ten list on Friday but thought everyone might find interesting now....

Green Bay safety Darren Sharper could be asked to take a pay cut in the near future. Although Sharper is under contract through 2006, he has a salary cap number of $8.633 million, which might lead the Packers to release him if he refuses to renegotiate his deal. "I'm under contract for next season," Sharper told the Green Bay Press Gazette recently. "If they have a problem with my contract, they haven't said anything to me about it."

Green Bay is going to have to make some tough decisions with a number of players. Especially considering that two of their OL will be free agents soon - Rivera and Wahle.

hummmm...... :wink:

Sharper is 5 years younger than Marion...not 30 until November. In the last 5 years or so Brock Marion had some of his most productive years...I think that would be a good pickup for the right price. Not much more out there via FA from what I have seen.

He has certainly been slowed down by injuries the last few years and not been close to his old Pro Bowl form. I certainly would like to see the Lions go in a different direction than Sharper (Darius anyone?). I just was posting this as another reason why the Pack could well take a big step backwards next year.

I am all for us getting Darius. I like his tough play at safety.

I don't think that I would care for Sharper, but that situation sure does seem to back Green Bay into a corner with the other free agents they are going to have to sign.
