NEW ORLEANS -- Free-agent safety Darren Sharper says he had minor arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, but is feeling good and planning to play somewhere next season.

Sharper attended a premiere Monday night of an NFL Films championship video being released this week by Warner Home Video. He arrived using crutches, but described the procedure as a minor cleanup and assured that he's feeling "real good."

Sharper sat out two regular-season games last season and missed periodic practices because of knee swelling. Still, he tied for the league lead with nine interceptions, returning three for scores, to help the Saints win their first Super Bowl.

Sharper says he's hoping to return to New Orleans, but is keeping his options open.
