Eagles trade for Sproles

The Eagles are expected to trade for Saints’ RB Darren Sproles (PFT, March 13).

The Saints will get a fifth-round pick in return for Sproles.

The Eagles had two fifth-round picks in the upcoming draft.

Gladly take Sproles on 3rd down over McCoy from a Giants perspective. But to get a guy like Sproles with the 5th pick is ridiculous.

Giants should have traded for him, would be a good kick/punt returner and is still explosive in the backfield as both runner and receiver, good pickup by eagles.

@Michael Frias  Agreed. Still unless they are using Sproles and Shady in the backfield at the same time I'd still rather see Sproles in the backfield than Shady cause that guy in amazing.

@Major Pain 0303 @Michael Frias Sproles will also act at their main KR/PR as well (I assume).  He fits perfectly in the system they run in Philly.  This is seriously a great move for them, especially since they had 2 5th rounders this year.
