Darren Sharper Re-Signs with Saints

For any fans who thought the Bears might totally re-shape their defensive backfield by bringing in free safety Darren Sharper, you can forget it.  Sharper just re-signed with the New Orleans Saints.  Here’s what Saints GM Mickey Loomis had to say:

“We have said since the end of the season that we would love to have Darren back in a Saints uniform for 2010 and I’m glad we’ve been able to make that happen,” G.M. Mickey Loomis said. “Darren was an integral part of our Super Bowl-winning team and we look forward to having him back.”

When the Bears drafted Major Wright to play free safety, the thought of getting a veteran safety diminished greatly.  With Sharper off the market, there really aren’t any safety prospects available unless the Rams and OJ Atogwe can’t comes to terms in the next month.
