There has been a murder in Savannah.  Allegedly.

Actually, it was in Stone Mountain, allegedly, and the suspect spent three years in the NFL.

Glenn Sharpe, 27, is accused of shooting a man to death on February 2, according to 11alive.com.

Undrafted in 2008 and signed by the Falcons, Sharpe also spent time with the Saints and Colts before exiting the league.  He won a Super Bowl ring as a member of the New Orleans practice squad.

Sharpe, who played college football at Miami, is perhaps best known for drawing the delayed pass interference penalty in the national title game against Ohio State to cap the 2002 season.  A true freshman at the time, he spent six seasons with the Hurricanes after tearing the ACL is each knee in separate years, 2003 and 2005.

    Is this guy related to Shannon Sharpe? Would make a few things much more clear….

    On a side note, Ray Ray stuffed Cundiff into a trunk and left him in the desert outside Vegas.

    Takes a real man to shoot somebody… enjoy prison!

    Is it really “allegedly” a murder? I mean, unless the guy shot himself to death, he was murdered right?

  5. mistersmith22 says: Feb 24, 2012 6:29 PM

    Ironically, in the NFL he was a safety.

    Now I guess he rolls with the safety off: decidedly unsafe.

    Who? This is better news for CFT. This guy barely sniffed an NFL roster. Can he really be called ‘former NFL player'; don’t think he ever cleared a 53 man roster?

    Maybe the Steelers will sign him now

    I think you just answered your own question.

    6 years in college and probably still needs 40 plus hours to graduate. This guy was a practice squad player, does he count?

    Allegedly because EVERYONE is innocent until proven guilty. Just because ur arrested doesnt mean ur guilty.

    They don’t give you a Super Bowl ring unless you were an NFL player. Hope that clears things up for you nitwits.

    Refs, your shadiness has consequences.

  16. kissbillsrings says: Feb 24, 2012 8:04 PM

    I find it IRONIC that no team that he played for was mentioned in the headline yet if the person was a member of the Patriots (even if only for 1 year no matter how many years/teams that person played for) the article would have read: “FORMER NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS PLAYER CHARGED WITH MURDER”, but because it was for the MEDIA DARLINGS Saints or Colts no team is mentioned….Go ahead, tell me I’m wrong, but we ALL know I’m right….

    Thank God it wasn’t an ex Viking…..

  19. teamgoku says: Feb 24, 2012 8:36 PM

    The guy couldn’t have done it. The article says he was a “saint”

    @kissbillsrings
    Where do you come up with the notion that the pats aren’t media darlings? A bit narcissistic? By that comment alone you seem to have some serious mental issues.

    Character counts (except in the NFL)

    Reading comprehension.

    The article says in the first line: “There has been a murder in Savannah. Allegedly.”

    It does not say “Glenn Sharpe committed a murder in Savannah. Allegedly.”

    Then again, I wouldn’t much comprehension if you’re too lazy to type “you’re” that you write “ur” instead.

    Go Canes! Keeping the tradition alive (and the haters dead)

    Turn. Squat. Cough.

  25. sullijo1 says: Feb 24, 2012 10:09 PM

    But……I bet he has a lot of “street cred” now…..so, he’s got that going for him.

  26. 1972wasalongtimeago says: Feb 24, 2012 10:55 PM

    Wouldn’t be the first time he was wrongfully accused of breaking a rule.

    The Bengals GM is frantically flipping thru his Rolodex trying to find this guy’s number.

  29. mystereo says: Feb 24, 2012 11:32 PM

    Obviously the Raiders new safety.

  30. ramitbaby says: Feb 24, 2012 11:45 PM

    I wonder if he was found in the trunk of his car like Rae Carruth.

    free room and board, 3 hot square meals…in this economy not too shabby.

    @bigbeefyd:

    The Bengals are FIFTH in the NFL in arrests since 2006. That means there are FOUR teams with more arrests. Also, they’ve never had a murderer on their team. None of our ex-players are murderers either.

    Ahahahahahahaha! Typical U “graduate.” You can’t make this stuff up:

    Wilson opened the door and Sharpe “struck her in the face and pushed her.” Wilson let Galloway know Sharpe was at the door and Galloway came from the back of the apartment and began to “fight,” according to reports.

    Sharpe and Wilson exchanged words when Sharpe “took out a black handgun from his side and began shooting into the apartment.”
