Instead, the New Orleans Saints dealt the 5-foot-6, 190-pound running back to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fifth-round pick, the team announced Thursday. Let’s hope he didn’t find out on Twitter.
"I don’t know where they would send me because I have no control over it, and I want to be able to pick [a team]," Sproles told ESPN on Wednesday.
Sproles has been a dynamic weapon out of the backfield during his nine-year career. He immediately adds depth at the running back position behind LeSean McCoy. Sproles is also a threat in the return game, handling the majority of punt returns for the Saints the last three seasons.
