There is an opening at free safety in New York following the Jets' decision to trade Kerry Rhodes to the Cardinals for two draft picks, and free-agent Darren Sharper said he's interested in filling the void. Sharper, who became an unrestricted free agent March 5, has yet to visit with any team as he's recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, but he told PFW correspondent Mike Triplett, who covers the Saints for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, that he knows he would be a good fit with the Jets. The 34-year-old did not say whether the Jets have shown interest in him; he appears to be interested in speaking with any team that he deems a good fit, so the Jets are just one of several potential landing spots for Sharper. New York's Eric Smith sits atop the depth chart at free safety for now, but the Jets are expected to bring in competition for him through free agency or the draft.
