Denver Broncos NOT Among Teams Vying For Darren Sproles

New, comments

Sometimes the best way to gain ground on a division rival is to weaken them while making yourself stronger at the same time.  That means, when the opportunity arises, signing away their free agents. 

I was asked the other day if I thought Darren Sproles would be an option for the Broncos.  Personally I have always been a fan of Sproles, especially as a return man.  We've seen him kill the Broncos over and over again, and with the Broncos having a need in the return game and in the backfield I thought Sproles was an attractive target.

The Broncos don't agree.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, there are three teams in the running for Sproles and the Broncos are not one of them:

New Orleans, Philadelphia and, yes, Chargers in running for Sproles. I'm told that's the final 3. Decision soon.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply

 

A bit disappointing, I guess, but a player like Sproles is a luxury the Broncos simply can't afford right now, on or off the field.
