2014 Houston Texans Free Agent Tracker: Darryl Sharpton Signs With Redskins

Gone. - Bob Levey

Linebacker Darryl Sharpton has added his name to the growing list of free agents that have been exported OUT of H-Town this week. For those keeping track, Mike Mohamed is now slated to be a starting linebacker for your Houston Texans. Yikes...

Updating an earlier story, the Washington Redskins, not the Tennessee Titans, have signed Darryl Sharpton to a one-year contract, according to ProFootballTalk:

The 26 year old Sharpton is the first cousin of 59 year old Reverend Al Sharpton (I'm not sure how that math works) and still has plenty of time to prove that he can stay healthy enough to be a full-time starter. By signing a one-year deal in Washington, one can assume that this is a "prove it" contract that would allow him to pursue more money this time next year. In return, the Skins get a depth option to help fill in for the now-retired London Fletcher. While not a dynamic player by any means, Sharpton now has the opportunity to show that he can be a capable, injury-free starter in the National Football League rather than the constantly banged-up, middling producer he was in Houston.

We wish him the best and hope he realizes his full potential in his new home.
