    tweet from Adam Schefter:

    "Filed to ESPN: As Len Pasquarelli initially reported, Saints will NOT place their franchise tag on S Darren Sharper. He'll be a free agent."

    Discuss.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa.

    Hold your horses there chief.

    The Saints and Sharper have until midnight of March 4th to come to an agreement.

    I suspect Sharper's agent and Lommis are working hard on an agreement to keep Sharper in New Orleans for much lees than the franchise tag would have cost us (6.8 million).

    I expect we'll see a 2 year deal worth approximately 9 million in the coming days.

    True.

    Tell Len Pasquarelli and Schefter to hold their horses.

    I think it was a show of respect from the Saints to Sharper. Players hate the franchise tag.

    Actually, I take that back.

    Your thread title is completely FALSE.

    Darren Sharper is NOT a free agent.

    I would get it changed.
