The Seahawks beat out the Bengals and Jaguars to reach a five-year, $17.5 million agreement to sign former Texans linebacker Jamie Sharper, considered one of the best players still available.
Sharper, who will get a $1.5 million signing bonus, visited the Seahawks last Thursday and Friday but left without a deal and was in serious discussions with the Bengals. When he was with the Ravens as defensive coordinator, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis coached Sharper. In the end, Sharper decided the money and opportunity to play in Seattle were the best.
ItalianDolFan said:whoa whoa, this guy is getting 17 million for 5 years. Meaning he is getting about 2.5 million a year?? So many people on this board said we COULDNT afford this guy, and we signed guys like Holliday and Carter to 5 million dollar deals....Sharper wouldve came at 2.5 mil a year! Can u imagine if we got Sharper instead of Spragan??? Our defense would looked amazing!

He's a performer.
Putting him next to Zach Thomas = the same lethal punch of Sharper and Ray Lewis for the SB Ravens.
