Sharper, Vikings continue taunting
By Pat Yasinskas
If you’re following the public taunting going on between New Orleans safety Darren Sharper and his former Minnesota teammates, we’ve got another chapter.
NFC North colleague Kevin Seifert has the full story on the latest development. I’ll just summarize it here. While visiting National Guard troops, Minnesota tight end Visanthe Shiancoe said he was presented with a target that feature a photo of Osama bin Laden with the words “I’m Darren Sharper’’ and Sharper’s number, 42, written on it. Shiancoe shared the photo on his Twitter account.
Sharper fired back on Twitter with a crack about Shiancoe’s hands.
The Saints and Vikings face each other in the season opener in September. It’s going to be a long summer.
