Sharper is 34, and will turn 35 in November, and he is coming off of knee surgery. However, he seems a good candidate to lend Dallas some safety help outside of Alan Ball, who currently figures to start in place of the departed Ken Hamlin--that is, if the team was interested.
According to recently surfaced reports contradictory of the initial batch, they may not be.
Of course, this doesn't rule out the possibility that, barring a signing in Jacksonville, the team could get interested in the near future. Despite the knee surgery, Sharper is expected to be ready for training camp.
