Jamie Sharper is expected to visit the Seattle Seahawks this week...while this sounds encouraging, the good news is killed off by some rather bad things to hear...
Tony Agnone, Sharper's agent, spoke with Mike Reinfeldt, the Seahawks' vice president of football administration, by phone yesterday. Agnone said the Seahawks would like Sharper to meet with coaches and front-office staff and that "he'll probably end up doing it. He feels he owes it to himself."
Agnone would like Sharper to make any visits as soon as possible and choose a team by the end of this week. Seattle is considered a longshot to acquire him, though a visit could change that.
Sharper would appear to be more interested in playing for a team led by a coach he knows well, such as Marvin Lewis in Cincinnati or Jack Del Rio in Jacksonville. Lewis was the defensive coordinator and Del Rio the linebackers coach in Baltimore when Sharper played there. Both teams have expressed interest, as have the Cleveland Browns.
Of couse, the make us not get any sleep in curiousity, optimism, and anticipation part:
'Seattle is considered a longshot to acquire him, though a visit could change that.
Sharper played in all but one game in the last 8 years (128 games)...if the Jaguars get him, ill be ticked
My prediction: He will go back to the Ravens for no apparent reason whatsoever---I dunno, before you guys get excited, remember...we're fans of Seattle teams...not exactly invincible to disappointment
