San Diego puts RB Darren Sproles on the trading block

It looks as if the Chargers are now looking to trade running back Darren Sproles, this after he was at first not given a tender, then the team did a 180 and gave him a first-and-third tender on Thursday. The 26-year-old had three touchdowns last year and rushed for 343 yards.

If the Chargers were to keep him, they would have to pay him $7,283,000 next season. If a team wants Sproles, it means they would have to give them a first and third round pick, and even at that the Chargers would have the right to match an offer the team makes.

Today’s San Diego Union-Tribune feels that the solution with Sproles is to simply trade him. The paper reports it won’t take a first- and third-round draft pick to get him via trade. There were a couple teams that had their eyes on Sproles when he was about to become an unrestricted free agent, including the Eagles, Chiefs, Redskins and Rams.
