I think this is the best batch or RBs that I have ever heard or any team having. Yes, that is right, I'm making that statement. BEST BACKFIELD ANYWHERE EVER!
Here is a picture of our new backfield (from left to right - Ivory, Thomas, Ingram, Hamilton, Sproles) ...

You forgot the best one:
Reggie- $11.2 million

Darren- $3.5 million

I was thinking that $3.5 was Reggie kind of money...
I like Sproles stature better than Reggie's.
Built low to the ground, and like Euph said, no hesitation at all. That works for me.
Sproles is a very good pick up.
ALL my concerns are on the other side of the ball. So many uncertainties.

This is a good move... We get a return guy... We get that 3rd down back to replace Reggie.... In fact he will prob fit in real nice here... GEAUX SAINTS

I think the pick-up is ok. I think they wanted to sign somebody with ivory and Thomas still recovering.

Bush and Sproles stats are not all that different.

Bush - Rush yards 2,090, AVG 4.0, TD 17, FUM 13
Sproles - Rush yards 1,154, AVG 4.6, TD 6, FUM 1

Bush - Receiving yards 2,142, AVG 7.3, TD 12, FUM 1
Sproles- Receiving yards 1,400, AVG 9.6, TD 11, FUM 1

Bush - Punt yards 720, AVG 7.8, TD 4, FUM 5
Sproles - Punt Yards 935, AVG 8.2, TD 2, FUM 7

I think he is a little better then bush, but not by much. The only thing I really like about him is the return game aspect. But I think Bush was a better red zone threat.

I knew something was definitely up when I saw those quotes from Payton in the press conference yesterday, when he started talking about Darren Sproles' skillset, when the reporters weren't really asking him a question about Sproles!
