Report: Saints will trade Sproles

After it was reported elsewhere that the Saints would cut running back Darren Sproles, we added a caveat:  The Saints would first try to trade him.

And now they apparently will trade him.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Saints will trade Sproles, thanks to a high demand for his services.

Sproles joined the Saints in 2011, after six seasons with the Chargers.  He turns 31 in June, and the Saints apparently believe his best days are behind him.  Fortunately for New Orleans, other teams disagree.

Thus, of all the veterans destined to be cut whose teams are trying to trade them, Sproles is the one, and perhaps only, that actually will be traded.
