Darren Sharper, a former All-Pro defensive back who played for three teams over a 14-year career, has been arrested on charge of rape.

The Los Angeles Police Department says it is investigating Sharper in conjunction with a pair of sexual assaults that took place in West L.A., one this month and one in October.

He was released Friday on $200,000 bail and is expected back in court on February 14.

The New Orleans Police Department, meanwhile, says it is also looking into an allegation of sexual assault filed against Sharper on September 24.

Shaper has worked as an analyst for the NFL Network since 2010 and has been suspended without pay "until further notice," according to a spokesman for the network.

Sharper, 38, starred over the years for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints. He recorded 63 career interceptions and was named to 2000's All-Decade Team.
