On Tuesday, fans were able to submit questions for RB Darren Sproles.

Sproles, a 5-6, 190 pound all-purpose threat joined the Saints prior to the 2011 season after spending five seasons with the San Diego Chargers and started off his Saints career with a bang. The dynamic running back went on to set an NFL single-season record with 2,696 all-purpose yards. Sproles appeared in all 16 regular season games with four starts and served as a rusher, receiver, and return man for the black-and-gold. He carried 87 times for a career-high 603 yards (6.9 avg.) with two touchdowns and caught 86 passes for 710 yards (8.3 avg.) and scored six touchdowns. Since 2007, no NFL player has more all-purpose yards than Sproles who has recorded 10,947 yards.

What was the biggest factor in your decision to come to New Orleans last year?

“I liked how when I used to watch the Saints play, I loved the way they used Reggie (Bush). They put him in space all the time and that was the way I wanted to play.”

How much different is it playing in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome?

“There is something about that dome. When you step in it, I don’t know. The dome is special. It is special. When you play in it, it gives you something. It gives you a little extra.”

What is your favorite part about being in New Orleans?

“The fans. The fans, they always keep us going. They are always behind us.”
