New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles has been traded to the Philadelphia Eagles for an undisclosed draft pick according to various media reports, ending almost two weeks of reports predicting a parting of ways with the team.

This is the second Saint the Eagles have picked up this week, as they signed former safety Malcolm Jenkins when free agency began Tuesday. The Washington Redskins were also among those interested, according to CBS Sports.

Sproles has been reported to be on the trade block since last week, but expressed surprise Tuesday night via Twitter that he would be traded and not released.

"WOW!" he tweeted in response to a report about his potential trade. He followed up with "The stuff u find out on twitter."

He told ESPN on Wednesday that he would rather be released so he could choose his own landing spot.

"I want to get released," Sproles told ESPN. "I don't want to be traded. I don't know where they would send me because I have no control over it and I want to be able to pick. The good thing is none of the teams I'm told they're talking to are terrible. It's more than two. I feel I should have more of an idea later on today."

Sproles has been with the Saints since 2011. He ends his Saints career with with 1,067 rushing yards (averaging 5.7 yards per carry) and five touchdowns. He also had 232 receptions for 1,981 yards and 16 TDs.

Sproles averaged 8.3 yards per punt return with one punt return for a touchdown and 26.1 yards per kickoff return with the Saints.

"He's great player, a great guy, a great friend of mine," teammate Mark Ingram said Sunday. "I just saw him (Saturday). He's doing fine. He's feeling good and excited about moving on to another chapter of his career.

"He'll be a great player for somebody else."

Rumor was we wanted 3rd or 4th. I'd settle for a 5th, but a 3rd or 4th is amazing.

Re: Darren Sproles Traded to Eagles

I am sick!!!!

I just saw the news on the NFL Network.


Oh man.....this is HORRIBLE!!!!!! It takes some time to develop a player by draft and to see what you really have. A big name might be a bust. An unknown might be a gem.

Best wishes to Sproles.
