    Are we still interested in Sproles?

    Haven't heard anything about that in a while. I think Sproles would be an excellent compliment to S Jaxx's power. Plus he could possibly team up with Amendola in the punt/kick returning game. Anyone have any info?

    I haven't heard nothing man, but our FO is being hush hush about everything until something or a official decision is made. I'd expect it to stay like that. But unlike Cofield and some others I really think our FO is pursuing Sproles like a mad man. Another possibility would be Bush. Spags knows the match up problem either one of these two will give opposing defenses not to mention thier contributation to ST's. Yes they might not be on the field alot but they have alot more plays as a KR/PR that could potentially give us some good good momentium changers. Devaney isn't stupid and Kevin can make something work, he's a good number cruncher.

    Either of those two RBs would be a great addition to our squad. Lets hope for the best!

    I really haven't heard any rumblings about the Rams' interest in any free agent running backs, which makes me a little nervous. Hopefully it's simply because they're doing an excellent job keeping their intentions locked up.

    Ya I hear both your centiments. From all the interviews I heard Billy talk about before and especially after the draft he said he has done a miserable job on the backup RB position and needs to address in FA. We'll see.... *sigh* stressful

    Hope you're right Nick, but it seems a bit strange that a top free agent prospect isn't getting mentioned at all in the frenzy going on at the moment.

    ^ The thing is no one has been linked to Sproles yet. Hasn't been one update from rotoworld, Shefter, Clayton, Glazer, Mort or on. So who knows what's going on.

    Re: Are we still interested in Sproles?

    I really do wonder if the luster has worn off on Sproles. His upside is essentially a third-down 'back, and there are probably cheaper/bigger options that teams can turn towards to fill that role.

    Plus, aside from DeAngelo Williams and maybe Sammy Morris, has there really been any action on running backs so far? Teams aren't exactly tripping over themselves to get these guys signed, which I think speaks to the nature of the position.

    Both are unrestricted free agents, I believe.
