Darren Sharper fired by NFL Network

National Football Post


Former New Orleans Saints safety Darren Sharper's contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network, a network spokesman confirmed to National Football Post.

Sharper was previously suspended without pay as he continues to face allegations that he's a serial rapist.

Sharper has been investigated for nine alleged rapes in five states, including alleged incidents in Los Angeles, Tempe, Ariz., New Orleans, Las Vegas and Miami Beach.

Sharper turned himself in Thursday in Los Angeles to face an arrest warrant in New Orleans for allegedly raping two women.

He is also facing rape charges in Los Angeles, pleading not guilty.

Sharper is a six-time All-Pro. He also played for the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings.
