Default Breaking News Out Of Houston

Texans release leading tackler Sharper



NFL.com wire reports

HOUSTON (April 1, 2005) -- The Houston Texans released veteran linebacker Jamie Sharper, continuing an offseason makeover of a defense that ranked in the bottom third of the NFL for the second straight season.

Sharper, entering his ninth year, had started all 48 games over the past three seasons at middle linebacker for the Texans since coming to the club in the 2002 expansion draft.

Sharper led Houston with 137 tackles in 2004 and also led the team in that category in 2002 but became expendable during an offseason in which the Texans are trying to add more speed to their 3-4 defense. Sharper had asked the team for his release three weeks ago after the Texans gave him permission to seek a trade.

Sharper spent the first five years of his career with Baltimore. He was a key starter on the dominant defense that led the Ravens to a Super Bowl title in 2000.

The Browns need him and they have tons of cap space! Go get em Phil! :D

Sharper is a top five, maybe even top three middle line backer....Plus he wants to play in a 3-4.....GRRRRRRRRRREAT!!!

A top 3 MLB.. u've gotta be kidding me man!! maybe a top 10..but no way a top 3.. in some minds maybe sorta kinda possibly a top 5.

He'll want a fair amount of cash !! Comon sharper, come to the AFCN, say hello to Mr Bettis, Mr. Staley and Mr Kreider and Mr Ward again. They've missed ya !!!

farrior and sharper in the middle, wow that would be amazing, two top 7 MLB's in the defense

Im not so sure he'd start over Foote! Larry has really come into his own last season, he's been biding his time on ST and in a backup role for so long that I just cant see him giving up that role anytime soon :)
