Saints Nation: Darren Sharper's Tweet Is Reason For Optimism

Darren Sharper spent a little time on his twitter account today, and if you're one for reading between the lines, then it's reason for optimism. The soon to be unrestricted free agent posted: "I would like to thank the entire WHO DAT nation for helping us realize all our of dreams," followed by, "Now let's party and think about repeat. And yea I said it, repeat!".

Call me crazy, but Sharper can't think about a repeat unless he re-signs with the team first. Call it a hunch, but I think it's a pretty clear statement that he intends on sticking around in New Orleans. Sharper's contract is officially set to expire in a couple of weeks, and I wouldn't be surprised if a handshake agreement is already in place. My prediction is that Sharper will sign an extension with the Saints on the first day of free agency.
