From Adam Schefter via Twitter:
Official: San Diego will not tender RB Darren Sproles and will allow him to test free-agent market. No LT, probably no Sproles. Changes.
All I can say is WOW. They are out of their ever loving minds. Why, in God’s name, would you let a back like Sproles walk?
Scott Pioli, are you listening to me? Sign. This. Man. Do. It. Now. Or, well, on March 5th.
Can you imagine Sproles and Charles in a two back set? Defensive coordinators would have strokes just thinking about it. Both have incredible speed and agility. Both are extremely viable receiving options coming out of the back field.
I think there is plenty of room on the Chiefs roster for Sproles and Charles. It would extend both of their careers and would make the Chiefs an absolutely sick offensive force on the ground.
That being said, I doubt the Chiefs will do it and I doubt Sproles will come to KC. He is likely to get a big payday and will probably want to start somewhere. Though you could consider Charles and Sproles to be co-starters, I bet Sproles will want his own spotlight, especially after dealing with all this Complainian Tomlinson stuff.
What do you think, Addicts? Should Pioli go after Sproles?
