Darren Sproles has been a notable absence from the Philadelphia Eagles' spring activities thus far, and now we may know the reason why.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Eagles received calls of trade interest for the veteran running back since mid-draft, and he has elected to stay away from OTAs until its sorted out.
“This isn’t a situation filled with frustration for Darren Sproles,” Rapoport adds. “But he’s away from the Eagles, with his family on the West Coast now.”
Sproles is in the final year of his three year, $10.5 million deal and will make $3.5 million this season, with the Eagles saving that $3.5 million should they manage to deal him away.
