PHILADELPHIA– The Philadelphia Eagles have brought back a fan favorite.

According to GM Howie Roseman, the team has agreed to terms with RB Darren Sproles.

Sproles, 34, will return to the field in 2018 after an injury-shortened 2017 season, where he tore his ACL and broke his arm on the same play.

In his last full season in 2016, Sproles ran for 438 yards and 2 TDs and had 427 yards through the air and two scores.

Sproles will be a part of a running back rotation with RBs Jay Ajayi and Corey Clement.
