Eagles bring back Darren Sproles for another year
The Eagles finished the weekend with a small draft class, but a big addition.
Via Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia , the Eagles brought veteran running back Darren Sproles back for another year.
Sproles suffered a broken hand and a torn ACL last year, cutting his season short in September, but it was clear they wanted him back.
I’ve always looked forward to being a father and right now I’m not at my best because I cannot be a good father here in DC while my wife and son have to be in Denver, Franklin wrote.

Jaguars executive vice president of football operations Tom Coughlin announced that the Jaguars have decided not to pick up defensive end Dante Fowler‘s contract. The option would have put them in line to pay Fowler $14.2 million next year, although Jacksonville could have rescinded it as long as Fowler was healthy enough to pass a physical.
An injury got Fowler’s pro career off on the wrong foot as he tore his ACL during a rookie minicamp practice shortly after being drafted. He returned to record four sacks in 16 games the next year and had eight to help the Jags to an AFC South title in 2017.
Couglin said that progression, which also included two sacks of Tom Brady in the AFC title game, has the Jaguars interested in finding another deal that would keep Fowler in the fold. Fowler could opt to bet on a continued rise leading into unrestricted free agency, although it remains to be seen how high he could push the ceiling with Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue also on hand at defensive end.
