Darren Sharper has re-signed with the New Orleans Saints, agreeing to a 1-year deal. Pro Football Talk seems to be the first to report it, though it has been confirmed by the Times-Pic and Sharper himself, via Twitter.

Hell yes! This is great news. Keeping Sharper in the fold was crucial. He was a huge part of the Saints championship season and the team really needs him if they want to seriously consider making another run for the title. Though I admit my love affair with him is slightly tainted after some of his off-season contract positioning ploys, I'm sure that will wash away with the first vision of him in a Saints uniform again.
For all the Mike Florio haters, this means Florio was correct when he reported two days ago that Sharper would sign with a team today. Does this give more validity to his reports that "SSM A" and "SSM B" really are Sean Payton and Joe Vitt, respectively, in Geoff Santini's lawsuit?
