|2013 Regular Season|
Sharpton has appeared in 47 games with Houston (2010-13) and Chicago (2014). He had 27 tackles in five games for the Bears.
Sharpton appeared in 42 games with 19 starts for Houston from 2010 to 2013. He signed with Washington in the offseason but got placed on injured reserve after he suffered a high-ankle sprain late in camp. The Redskins released Sharpton this week.
Sharpton would help the Redskins' special teams and could be another candidate to replace London Fletcher, who is expected to retire. Sharpton has started 19 games over four seasons with the Houston Texans, including eight starts last year after Brian Cushing went down with a knee injury.
