Have a Nikon 18-200mm VR (not II) and was thinking about buying a used Nikon 18-140mm

Hi All, I have a Nikon 18-200mm VR (1st edition not II) . I used it mostly on my D80 and was always pretty pleased with the results. I just bought a new D7500 and for some reason I was always curious about the Nikon 18-140mm VR lens. There is a used one that looks to be in pretty good shape that I could buy for $180, however for some reason I just haven't pulled the trigger on the purchase. I've read that the 18-140mm is sharper than the 18-200mm but now that I can buy one at a good price I am hesitant, thinking that I may be better off just using my 18-200mm. I'm not a pixel peeper and rely more on good photographic techniques. Am I wasting my time and money thinking about adding the 18-140mm to my collection? Any and all thoughts appreciated?

By the way I got the 18-55VR and the 70-300VR with my D7500 kit from Costco.
