Saints trade Darren Sproles to Eagles
The Eagles have acquired Darren Sproles from the Saints in a trade, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.
The diminutive but explosive running back was originally expected to be released by the Saints, but they had a change of heart when they saw the interest in Sproles and decided to trade him.
Sproles is a superb fit with the Eagles, a pass-catching running back who can alter the return game in a wide-open offense like the one Chip Kelly runs.
Think about all the screens or fake screens you see the Eagles use throughout their offense. Those can run through Sproles, who's as destructive in the screen game as they come. Sproles will also be active in the passing game and return game, just like he was in New Orleans.
La Canfora also reports the Redskins were attempting to acquire Sproles (who would've given them a Giovani Bernard-like running back for Jay Gruden's offense). It stings doubly for Washington that he's headed to an NFC East rival.
