But Sharper is also a confessed serial rapist, and that's clearly something nobody wants to celebrate.
For that reason, the Saints have decided to remove the giant banner photo of that iconic image of Sharper and Porter from the Champions Square area outside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome during renovations this off-season.
"It's common sense," team executive Ben Hales said Monday. "We don't even want the perception that that's an individual we're celebrating."
Sharper ended his 14-year
But his image unraveled early last year when he was arrested on suspicion of rape. He went on to be charged with sexual assault and other related crimes in California, Louisiana, Nevada and Arizona.
Meanwhile the Saints are trying to move on from the ugly situation -- and unfortunately that means removing the image of a cherished memory from outside their stadium.
