Two people familiar with the trade say the Philadelphia Eagles have acquired Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for a fifth-round draft pick. According to one person with knowledge of the deal, the Saints get the second of Philadelphia's two fifth-round picks in May.
Sproles is coming off one of his least productive seasons. He ranked in the bottom five among punt returners with a 6.7 yards per return average and was third-worst among kick returners with an average of 21.3. Sproles had 71 catches for 604 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 220 yards and two scores.
