Kristian: Saints trade Sproles to Eagles

The Saints have traded running back Darren Sproles to the Eagles.

WWL Saints Sideline reporter Kristian Garic says a league source confirms that a deal has been worked out.  "Sproles has been on the trade block for a few days," Garic said.

What's the deal?

"The Saints get a 5th round draft choice," according to Garic.

Sproles played the past three season with the Saints.  His production has steadily declined with the Black and Gold.

In 2011, he averaged 6.9 yards per carry.  Last season it dropped to an average of 4.2 yards.

He racked up more than 2,000 all purpose yards running, receiving and returning for the Saints in 2011.

In 2013, Sproles had fewer than 1,300 combined yards.
