The Facts: When the executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman announced that the team was bringing back Sproles, the smile on head coach Doug Pederson's face was huge. Why? Because Pederson feels Sproles is a perfect fit in his offense, and that likely won't change next season even if the veteran is coming off of a torn ACL.
Diehards Line: As NJ.com's Eliot Shorr-Parks reminded readers, Sproles was the team's starting running back last season prior to going down, and was their main back in both their hurry up offense and their third-down packages. The Eagles are not bringing him back for a feel-good story -- they are bringing him back because they plan on using him. That could change slightly with the emergence of Corey Clement last season, but it would not be surprising at all to see Sproles near the top -- if not at the top -- of snaps on the field for the running backs next season.
