Saints News, 8/18/16: Darren Sharper Gets Sentenced to 18 Years in Federal Prison

New, comments

Former NFL Safety Darren Sharper has been sentenced for the rape of 16 women over several states. Sharper will get 18 years in federal prison. On the field, a slew of Saints' players fell victim to the sweltering Texas heat, but it's been noted that their defense not only endured, but thrived without Delvin Breaux and PJ Williams, easing some of the questions of their depth.
