WOW! maybe i'm the wrong guy to ask, but I thought the Chargers were at their best with a hot running game, now they just let another big piece walk away.

Free-agent running back Darren Sproles told The Associated Press that he has decided to sign with the New Orleans Saints, saying in an email that he "can't wait to get started."


Sproles agreed to a four-year, $14 million deal with $6 million guaranteed, a league source told NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora. Sproles can't sign the deal until Friday

Nice move by The Aints. Dude is a bonafide weapon. On turf, he'll be devastating.

Good for him. Sproles is my favorite non-Broncos player, and now he's off the wretched Chargers...^5

SD should have traded him last year.

Wow, they got a much faster, tougher, and productive player.

Glad the little *hit is out of the division.

And don't forget they drafted Ingram. They are stacked in the backfield. If they beat us out for Mebane, they would have to be one of the top 2 teams in the NFC.

Pierre Thomas, Ivory, Ingram and Sproles. Den outta look to either PJ Hill or Lynell Hamilton because unless they get hit by injuries again, that team's gonna have to cut running backs.
