While the Saints might have to replace FS Darren Sharper next season, we hear the team is not eager to move CB Malcolm Jenkins to free safety in order to fill the void. New Orleans drafted Jenkins to play corner and would like to see the 2009 first-round pick continue to focus on that position, even though he was billed by some as a corner-safety hybrid coming out of Ohio State and has the tools necessary to play either position.

Jenkins, who started six games at cornerback last season, is expected to compete with Randall Gay to be the Saints' nickel back in 2010, and some insiders say there's still a good chance Sharper, who is seeking offers from other clubs, will re-sign with the Saints later this offseason. New Orleans could spend an early draft pick on a free safety or, if Sharper were to move on, another veteran free agent could be brought in to compete for the role.
