Sharper for MVP?

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

Our friends over at SportsNation explore the idea of New Orleans safety Darren Sharper as a most valuable player candidate.

Take a look at what they have to say. My feelings are that Sharper’s at least a candidate at this moment. But I think it would be hard for him to win MVP over teammate Drew Brees, who’s putting up huge numbers and plays the glamour position of quarterback.

But, at the very least, I think Sharper’s the leading candidate, at the moment, for defensive player of the year.
