Sharper Image For Eagles Defense?

NFL.com's Frank Tadych spoke with free agent safety Darren Sharper following a live chat with fans and while "throwing out an educated guess" he put the Eagles as one of the potential landing spots for the five-time Pro Bowl selection.

Sharper had nine interceptions last season for the Super Bowl-champion New Orleans Saints, which was tied with cornerback Asante Samuel for tops in the NFL.

The 34-year-old Sharper played last season on a one-year deal. He underwent a procedure on his left knee earlier this off-season. According to Tadych, Sharper would like to play free safety for a "playoff-caliber team."

The Eagles signed Marlin Jackson from the Colts in free agency. Jackson is recovering from an ACL injury, but if the rehab process continues to go well he is expected to start at free safety for the Eagles in 2010. Jackson can also play cornerback if another veteran or draft pick is acquired. The Eagles also have last year's opening day starter in Macho Harris and Quintin Demps, who is entering his third season.
