Saints are cutting RB Darren Sproles


The New Orleans Saints are cutting running back Darren Sproles ahead of the free agency period according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

In 2013, Sproles rushed 53 times for 220 yards and caught 71 passes for 604 yards. He had four total touchdowns. His release comes as a bit of a surprise, the Saints were reportedly considering trading Sproles just earlier this week according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

[UPDATE:] There is another report that Sproles has not been cut yet, they’re still trying to trade him. In the event that they can’t move him, then he will be traded.

    Well my Saints just cut one of my favorite players on the roster. The league works this way, if you are a VET with some age on your wheels and the salary is not what the team wants to spend, you are out the door.
