Kelly looking forward to plan for Darren Sproles
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Eagles coach Chip Kelly said at the NFL owners meeting that he has a plan for new running back Darren Sproles, but he's not sure how best to use him until they get out on the field.

The Eagles traded for Sproles from the Saints.

"His versatility and his ability to do different things with him is intriguing," Kelly said. "But until
we have the opportunity to get out there and practice. ..."

Kelly said he liked that Sproles can split out wide as a receiver, and he also mentioned his skills in the return game. But how he will mesh with starter LeSean McCoy or help replace the departed DeSean Jackson remains to be seen.

"Those are all things we'll figure out when we get our hands on him," Kelly said. "But we've got to be smart enough as coaches to get the ball in his hands because he's a dynamic player with the football in his hands."

Eagles give Darren Sproles two-year extension
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Eagles have signed newly-acquired running back Darren Sproles to a two-year contract extension, reports ESPN.

Sproles, acquired via trade Thursday from the Saints, was set to become a free agent after the 2014 season. He's now under contract to the Eagles through 2016.

Darren Sproles headed to Philadelphia
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

On the same day it was reported that the Redskins were trying to make a move for Darren Sproles, the Eagles have emerged as the team to get him. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora is among several members of the media reporting Thursday that the Eagles will acquire Sproles in a trade from the Saints.

"Darren Sproles is an unbelievable offensive weapon," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said in a statement. "He can do it all, run, catch, plus he's a proven winner. And on top of that, he can bring all of those dynamic skills to the return game as well. There is no question we were all excited once we found out we were going to be able to trade for him."

The Saints received a fifth-round pick for Sproles according to ProFootballTalk.com. 

The move is a terrific fit for the Eagles. Sproles is a player who thrives in the open field and the offense the Eagles run often puts rushers like that in good situations constantly. To wit, LeSean McCoy had 52 catches for 539 yards (a 10.4 avg.) and two touchdowns. 

Sproles is expected to back up McCoy as well as play in the slot with McCoy on the field in Philadelphia.

Redskins trying to make a deal for Darren Sproles
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Redskins have emerged as a potential trade partner with the Saints for running back Darren Sproles, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday morning. Several teams have been rumored to be interested in the speedy pass-catching running back.

Sproles had 124 touches for 824 yards and four touchdowns last year, numbers that paled in comparison to his previous seasons' work with New Orleans. He's due over $3 million in 2014.

Darren Sproles would prefer to be released
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Saints are shopping running back Darren Sproles, but he told ESPN he'd prefer to be released. "I don't want to be traded," Sproles said. "I don't know where they would send me because I have no control over it and I want to be able to pick.

"The good thing is none of the teams I'm told they're talking to are terrible. It's more than two. I feel I should have more of an idea later on today."

Don't expect Sproles to get his wish. If the Saints can get something for him, they will.
