The New Orleans Saints didnít wait long to find a replacement for Reggie Bush.

Find out where all the big free agents are signing before the season.

A source told that the Saints have reached agreement on a two-year contract with free-agent running back Darren Sproles. Financial terms werenít immediately available.

Sproles, 28, doesnít have the same physical size as Bush, who was traded Thursday to the Miami Dolphins for an undisclosed draft pick and safety Jonathan Amaya. But like Bush, the 5-foot-6, 190-pound Sproles does have outstanding pass-catching skills out of the backfield. Sproles also is a capable blocker on blitz pickups and can potentially assume return duties for the Saints as well.

After spending the past six seasons in San Diego, Sproles was also under strong demand from the Philadelphia Eagles. He caught a career-high 59 passes for 520 yards and two touchdowns in 2010. Sproles also averaged 5.3 yards on his 50 rushing attempts.

Sproles also worked out extensively this offseason with Saints quarterback Drew Brees. The two were Chargers teammates in Sprolesí 2005 rookie season before Brees signed with the Saints in free agency the following season.

Sproles joins a talented Saints backfield that also includes starter Pierre Thomas and 2011 first-round draft choice Mark Ingram.
