He'd be on the roster anyway because he's one of our best special teamers. And honestly we don't have a ton of good ST guys. Not many of our WR's or CB's are going to be out there running down kicks so we're going to have to keep at least a couple guys just because they're good on ST.

Much as I hated it, I think we got rid of Sproles at precisely the right time. I've liked Cadet from the start - lets see if he can truly fill that role. As little as Darren is, those are mighty big shoes to fill.

i was calling on Cadet to the breakout player of the year last year. so maybe i was a year early.

all he has to do is establish himself as a player defenses must account for. that is it.

Cadet was the next big thing a couple years ago but kinda faded away behind Thomas and Sproles. I figure Payton must be confident Cadet can pick up some of the slack left by Sproles departure. Maybe he's still the same Cadet that was so impressive in the 2012 preseason.

I know I'll miss Darren. He was one of the best.

Sproles was a business decision. Pure and simple. I think Cadet and Cook will take his place.

Cadet has been brilliant when called upon and is is still developing. Now he gets to prove his worth with Sproles gone.

One can argue Sproles isn't elite either he fits a role that he excels at and fitted a role.
I disagree with this. Sproles has elite quickness and hands. When LSU beat Oklahoma in the title game, K-State beat the Sooners the previous game because Soroles ran for 300yds on em.

Cadet has to prove it to me

Kiry on the other hand - give that guy the ball
start using him in the passing game too
We don't need the Darren of today.

I think the 2014 Sproles isn't even close to his former 2006-ish self.
