Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has been indicted in Arizona on charges of sexual assault and administering dangerous drugs.

Sharper has sexual assault investigations pending against him in Louisiana, California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada. He's pleaded not guilty to seven rape and drug counts in connection to two alleged attacks in Hollywood. The details of the Arizona case are not yet known outside of it relating to sexual attacks committed in Tempe in November.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper was booked in a Los Angeles jail Thursday after police in New Orleans obtained a warrant for his arrest.

Sharper, 38, is accused of raping nine women and drugging 11 across five states. He was arrested on January 17 by the LAPD but had been free on bond up until this point. The NOPD warrant is for two counts of aggravated rape. Another man, Erik Nunez, 26, has also been arrested in connection to the rapes. If convicted of aggravated rape in Louisiana, Sharper could face life behind bars.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has pled not guilty to rape charges in Los Angeles.

"We look forward to the true facts being revealed in this case, and we are hopeful that Mr. Sharper will be fully exonerated before this case is concluded," Sharper's attorney said. Sharper is being investigated on multiple rape claims in as many as five states. Sharper faces more than 30 years in prison if convicted on the Los Angeles charges.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper has been charged with drugging and raping two women in Los Angeles.

These are felony charges. Sharper, 38, is accused of raping two women whom he had invited back to his hotel room. He reportedly gave them liquid shots containing Ambien and morphine, causing them to pass out. One woman woke up while Sharper was assaulting her, while the other woke up naked hours later. It's been requested that bail be set at $10 million because Sharper is being investigated for rapes in L.A., New Orleans, Nevada and Arizona. Sharper is currently employed by NFL Network but was suspended without pay last month.

Ex-NFL S Darren Sharper was arrested Friday on suspicion of rape.

TMZ first reported the news. Profootballtalk has confirmed it. Sharper, 38, has been linked to two sexual assaults -- one in October 2013 and another this month. The former Packers, Vikings, and Saints star was booked at a Los Angeles jail and released on $200K bail. Sharper retired prior to the 2011 season and now works for NFL Network, though probably not for much longer.

Former Saints safety and five-time Pro Bowl selection Darren Sharper plans to retire.

Just about to turn 36 in November, Sharper got a workout with the Broncos in September but there wasn't much interest in him around the league. A member of the NFL's All-Decade team for the 2000s, it is likely that he follows through on his plan to retire.

The Broncos will try out free agent S Darren Sharper on Tuesday.

This is our first Sharper post since August 27. The Broncos don't need safety help, so they might be doing Sharper's agent a favor. Sharper has little left in the tank after struggling in eight games last year. He turns 36 in November.

According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, "don't expect the Saints to bring back (free agent) Darren Sharper."

The Times-Picayune's Mike Triplett believes Jonathon Amaya has earned the Saints' No. 3 safety job behind Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins. Sharper has reportedly been staying in shape, and is still hopeful of playing in what would be his 15th NFL season.

The Patriots are scheduled to work out free agent safeties Darren Sharper and Renaldo Hill.

The Boston Globe hears coach Bill Belichick is "desperately" looking for a free safety after losing Jarrad Page to Philly and cutting Brandon McGowan. He's continuing his due diligence since bringing in Dashon Goldson a week ago. Now 35 and coming off an injury-plagued season, Sharper's market never developed.

ESPN's Pat Yasinskas believes free agent S Darren Sharper's time in New Orleans could be done.

The Saints' are set at safety with Malcolm Jenkins and newly re-signed Roman Harper. It's unlikely that Sharper would sign on to be a strict backup. Then again, we haven't heard a whiff of any other team showing interest in the 35-year-old.

Free agent Darren Sharper estimates there is a "50-50" chance he will return to New Orleans for the 2011 season.

"I'd be riding a dead horse," said Sharper, "if I thought that the kid who is younger than me and came in and played well last year (Malcolm Jenkins) won't be the projected starter." Sharper's first choice is to find a starting job. If that offer is not forthcoming, he'd just assume return to the Saints as a reserve.

Although free agent Darren Sharper would "love" to return to New Orleans, he plans to first look for a starting job on the open market.

The 35-year-old feels like he's as healthy as he was during the 2009 season after a lost year in 2010. Sharper accepts that Malcolm Jenkins in entrenched with the Saints, so he has to decide if he wants to return to "spot duty." The free agent market will help make that decision for him.

Free agent Darren Sharper acknowledged to the AP Wednesday that he'll consider retirement if the lockout wipes out the 2011 season.

"If there's no football in the fall, I'll have to start looking at other options -- maybe some television, or whatever," he said. Sharper has a future in broadcasting, having "interned" previously with NFL Network and excelled. He says his priority is to find a team to play for this year, but it's not going to be easy to do. He was ineffective in eight 2010 appearances.

Free agent Darren Sharper wants to play one more NFL season so that he doesn't walk away from football on a bad note.

After offseason microfracture surgery in 2010, Sharper managed to appear in just eight games with one start, and was badly exposed in coverage. "I don't want to hobble out of the game," he said. Sharper is now entering his age-36 season with little left. He'll have to take a deal for the veteran's minimum.
