I think he has got to be our #1 target in FA period

mainly on special teams, I think hes totally worth it and fits our offense perfectly.

we could use the extra speed on offense he would be a nice change of pace, Moreno/Sproles/Buckhalter would be a great 3-headed back field.

maybe McDaniels will take the Patriot way and get Sproles in Denver like BB got Welker in NE. Take players that use to kill you in your division.

how great would it be seeing Sproles return some kicks for TDs against the Chargers :wave:

Report: Sproles won't be back on one-year deal
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on February 23, 2010 5:04 PM ET

It's starting to look like the Chargers will have two players to replace in their backfield.

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Chargers won't retain Darren Sproles on a one-year contract. (Sproles was due $7.3 million as a restricted free agent, 110% of what he made last year as the team's franchise player.)

San Diego would like to re-sign Sproles to a long-term deal, but they only see him as a complementary part. At least one team should see him as much more. Expect him to hit the open market.

This news isn't particularly good for LaDainian Tomlinson or Brian Westbrook. Both veterans look like third-down backs and may have to wait in line behind Sproles to get a deal done.

Because of Sproles' age and ascendant ability, we'd guess that he will make more than Westbrook and Tomlinson combined in 2010. Fortunes change brutally fast at the running back position.

not happening ... He's going to want paid...
And having that much cash tied up in that position is pointless.

Kevin, on what planet is a RB going to be our number ONE target?

hes more than a RB, hes a return guy too we can take Eddie off punt and kick return.

Our return game has been mediocre forever.....Sproles would change that, and our offense lacks explosive players.

Adding Sproles will help the whole football team adding more weapons never hurt and Buckhalter was hurt a lot last year.

He's going to want starting RB money. He fancies himself a starting halfback.

Yep.

Eddie Royal is a perfectly capable returner, no need to waste money on a part time scat back.

Sproles had a fantastic 2008 and a pretty meh 2009 when he was given a bigger role. If the Chargers aren't willing to pay him when they have nobody else at RB that should tell you something.

Maybe with the questions we have at qb we can go to a primarily wild cat O featuring 3 maybe 4 Hb's counting Hillis ...

Sproles,Hillis:strong:,Moreno,Buckhalter,

with nothing but bubble screens to Eddie and Marshall the 10 or so plays we have a Qb on the field.

Okay well don't b**** and complain during the season talking about you wish we had more explosive players and plays on offense and take it out on Moreno because he hes not a burner.

Moreno is good I hate the hate he gets I don't understand it hes going to be a great back and right he is our work horse hes a powerful inside runner with shiftiness hes got decent speed but hes not a burner the fact is we have no burners on offense outside of Royal. Can't expect us to get deep plays from Orton we have a better chance at breaking one on a screen or in the return game.

Sproles makes sense no ones going to break the bank for him hes not a #1 RB I think we could get him for a lot less than people think.

Yep.

Eddie Royal is a perfectly capable returner, no need to waste money on a part time scat back.

Why waste Royal as a returner tho?

I believe a big reason why Royal wasn't taking as many snaps at WR is because his role as our main return guy he was getting dinged up a lot there. I think we need to focus on using Royal at WR.

his back to back returns was nice but that was one game......

We already have 2 guys splitting carries and getting paid decent bucks. Adding another RB who will want more then both those guys combined would be insane, not to mention now we have 3 guys to try and get plays for. Having depth at RB is great, but to have 3 guys you declare as starting types is not good. Bucky has got plenty of speed. He shocked me this year. I thought he had nothing left but he's got plenty. Once the blocking gets better, I expect Moreno and Bucky to really rip off some chunks.

And we saw what Royal could do as a return guy last year in the first SD game, taking back 2 TD's to the house. Our week to week blocking on ST has to be better, and if it does, I expect Royal to be better. And he wasn't a big part of the passing game because he wasn't thrown to or looked at much, not because he was dinged up. Even McD said he has to do a better job at finding Royal in the passing game.

So NO, Sproles would not be the 1st FA to look at. Mankins would have to be that guy in my opinion. If Olsen could snap the ball and play center, Mankins could play LG and you have one bad ass line right there, and BIG too.
