Eagles for assembler

Multiple sources report the Philadelphia Eagles have traded for New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles. The Saints will receive a fifth-round draft pick from the Eagles in return for the 10 year NFL veteran. Sproles had expressed a desire to be released rather than traded earlier this week, so that he could choose his destination.

Sproles set an NFL record in 2011 for racking up 2,696 all-purpose yards.
