Today we welcome former All Pro safety and current NFL Network analyst Darren Sharper to the AA Podcast. Darren was a perennial Pro Bowler, a Super Bowl champion with the New Orleans Saints, and one of the best to ever play the position and is now transitioning into a media career at the league network. Today I asked Darren about that new career, the NFL concussion controversy, his time with the Saints and much more. Topics include…
-How early into his career he was interested in getting into television.
-Why his biggest challenge as a broadcaster is critiquing former teammates.
-Thoughts on the NFL's concussion settlement.
-Being a year removed from BountyGate.
-His favorite memory from his Super Bowl season and what made the 2009 season his favorite time as a player.
-What the Saints need to do to make 2013 a comeback season.
-Why Baltimore has something to prove in tonight's season opener.
-Which Week 1 matchup Darren is most looking forward to.
-Darren's Top 5 NFL QBs, this is a fun one and a list that may not be what you'd expect.
All that and a lot more on the latest installment of the AA Podcast.
