The Facts: The Eagles have announced that Sproles has signed a one-year contract to return to the team.
Diehards Line:Originally a draft pick of the Chargers fourteen years ago, Sproles already has spent five years in Philadelphia. He missed most of the 2017 season with a torn ACL, and he appeared in only six games last season, along with both postseason games. Of course, as PFT notes, there’s no guarantee Sproles will make the roster in Philly. The Eagles have a crowded house at tailback, and Sproles (if he makes the final 53) possibly will at best be a role player.
