So its been reported that the Chargers are prepared to allow RB Darren Sproles to test the free agent waters. I guess San Diego feels its time for some housecleaning? So of course, I began to think what a perfect compliment a guy like this would make to Shady and Weaver (presuming Weave sticks around which I'm saying he will).
Sproles has two things going for him. One, he's young (26). And two, he's fresh, having only carried the ball 199 times in his 5 year career. He also catches the ball out of the backfield....and is a dangerous kickoff returner. At 5-6 and 185 pounds he will never be a workhorse, but if used properly would be able to spell Shady while creating a night-and-day change of pace for the offense. I wouldn't open the vault for him, but if the price is right I'm thinking this guy could be everything Andy thought Lorenzo Booker would be.
Anyway, its just a thought. Since we now could use some depth in the backfield its something i think the front office should take a look at.
