METAIRIE Darren Sproles had no idea he'd be such a central part of the Saints' offense when he first arrived in New Orleans not that he's complaining.

"I was thinking that my job would just be the third downs," said Sproles, who was always a big-play threat with his only other NFL team, the San Diego Chargers, but was rarely one of the featured players in their offense.

"It's an adjustment," Sproles continued. "I like my role, though."

I absolutely love it. What a great pickup. He's everything the Reggitarians were hoping Bush would be.

Great pickup & we still get something for RB - no matter how little or what high round.

Totally agree...I also dig that the pro Bush camp has been muzzled. I believe Saints should deal with San Diego more often...Brees then Sproles what other major contributors could they send our way

Reggitarians...that's funny

So I guess that makes me a Reggitarian-American?!?

But he is unquestionably, the second best free agent signing since Brees, though Greer is right there...
