Earlier tonight, word emerged that free-agent safety Darren Sharper underwent knee surgery two days before the start of free agency.
So why did he do it then? Per a league source, his knee was so swollen that he couldn’t have passed a physical.
Thus, he had no choice but to get the procedure done.
For now, it appears that Sharper could still land with the Saints. It’s believed that a couple of other teams might be interested.
