After visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars this off-season, Sharper re-upped with the Saints, inking a one-year deal worth nearly $3 million.

A second-round pick out of William & Mary by the Green Bay Packers in 1997, Sharper has 63 interceptions and 11 touchdowns during a 14-year career with the Packers (1997-2004), Minnesota Vikings (2005-08) and Saints (2009). The five-time Pro Bowler was named to the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 2000s in January.
