Guaranteed money, signing bonuses, always stay with the home team whether it's trade or release. Best case scenario for that dead money is that he is designated a post June 1st release and then it can be split over 2 years.

Darren Sproles ‏@darrensproles
WOW! "@espnnfl: THIS JUST IN: Saints now plan to trade RB Darren Sproles due to heavy interest. He will not be released.

Darren Sproles ‏@darrensproles
The stuff u find out on twitter

Sproles didn't even know. That's gotta be a little awkward.

That was what I couldn't get across to people about signing then trading Graham. A franchise tag is guaranteed, thus becomes dead money..... For us.

Sproles is a good back but he is a specialist and as pointed out his returns have suffered. Is he good? Yes

3.5m + a draft pick good? That's stretching it. IMHO.

Re: Sproles not released yet

A Ravens insider reporting they are interested in Sproles.
Jeff Duncan reckons a low conditional pick, maybe a 6th.
