NFL Network suspends Darren Sharper without pay
With former NFL player Darren Sharper being charged with suspicion of rape, his current employer has moved swiftly.
“Darren has been suspended without pay until further notice, effective immediately,” NFL Network said in a statement issued to PFT. “Regarding the charges, as a matter of policy, we don’t comment on pending legal action.”
Sharper, who spent 14 years with the Packers, Vikings, and Saints, has been working as an analyst for NFL Network.
Free on $200,000 bail, Sharper reportedly faces allegations involving two incidents -- one in October 2013 and one in January 2014.
