Yes, there could be a team desperate enough to do it but would Sproles want to go there?
Not as unlikely as you think. Some teams that may show intrest in a trade may have no chance getting him in FA. Think of this, The Browns may be willing to give up a 4th because they are in need of a rb. Would Sproles sign there on his own???? Heck no!

10 teams interested? That's no surprise. For the right price he is still great player.

He wouldn't be up for trade if the browns offered the Saints a 4th.

Re: Sproles not released yet

A lot of interest, but my guess the stumbling block is inheriting the contract. Saints are trying not to lose the dead money, even though it's 'only'' 750,000

If they Jags have robbed the 49ers for a 6th rounder for Blaine Gabbart how has nobody offered the same for Sproles

@LarryHolder: RT @AdamSchefter: Saints still haven't released RB Darren Sproles and now plan to trade him due to heavy interest, per ESPN source. Not being released, though
