Sharper breaks INT return record
By Pat Yasinskas
NEW ORLEANS -- Darren Sharper just broke the NFL record for return yards on interceptions in a season.
Sharper just had his ninth interception of the season, picking off a Josh Freeman pass and returning it 21 yards. That gives Sharper 376 return yards this season. The previous record (358 yards) was set by Ed Reed in 2004.
Sharper now has 63 career interceptions. That times him for sixth place on the all-time list with Ronnie Lott.
