Saints trade Darren Sproles to Eagles

March 14th, 2014 by in Sports

That was it. The Eagles had signed receivers Riley Cooper and Jeremy Maclin, their two biggest unknowns on offense heading into the offseason, and they now could focus on the other side of the ball up through May.

Uh, yeah, Chip Kelly had (at least) one more trick up his sleeve on his burgeoning offense.

On Thursday, the New Orleans Saints traded running back Darren Sproles to the Eagles, according to various media reports. The Saints had considered cutting Sproles but wisely held onto him once it was clear there was a vibrant trade market for his services.

The Eagles traded a fifth-round pick to the Saints, one they had received for Isaac Sopoaga last season.
