Matthew Sharpe

Sharper cuffed and one NFL coordinator on the move headline the news on Saturday.

Former NFL safety Darren Sharper has been arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department on felony charges and was given a $200,000 bond, according to the department's website.

Sharper is believed to be suspected of two counts of rape, dating from October 2013 and again in January of 2014, per TMZ reports and Pro Football Talk. In response to the arrest, Sharper has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL Network, where he served as an analyst since 2012 after his career with the New Orleans Saints ended in 2010.

Ray Horton hired as Titans defensive coordinator

Tennessee Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt is reforming the band in a new town. According to reports, he has hired former Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton to serve in the same role on his new staff.

Horton was once believed to be a potential head coach candidate, but left Arizona after Whisenhunt was fired and he did not have an opportunity to interview for the Cardinals head coaching job. He led one of the league's best defenses in 2012, but took a step back working with a young and inexperienced unit in Cleveland.

Adam Gase could stay in Denver

Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase is a hot name in coaching circles, but teams waiting for his services could be sorely disappointed. Reports out of Denver indicate that he could elect to stay with the Broncos in 2014, rather than seek a more prominent job in a new city.

Gase's decision could have a huge impact on the Cleveland Browns, who are rumored to be waiting on the offensive coordinator.
