Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles was traded to his current team from the New Orleans Saints in the offseason after spending three seasons in New Orleans, and he was notified by Twitter first about it.
The running back revealed that he felt the Saints mishandled the way he was sent packing. “I felt disrespected there. Listen I understand this is business and all of that, but they put it up on Twitter. That’s how I found out. There was a screen shot and a friend of mine texted it to me. I felt they did me wrong,” Sproles said to NJ.com.
Sproles has already made a significant impact on the Eagles offense while starting running back LeSean McCoy has struggled. His biggest game so far has been against the Indianapolis Colts, where he caught seven passes for 152 yards.
The all-purpose back has always been useful in the passing game, catching at least 70 passes in each of his three seasons with the Saints.
Although Sproles will not have a chance to take out his anger on the Saints this season, he can have satisfaction in the fact that the Eagles are 3-1 while the Saints are struggling with a 1-3 record.
