A big-time player with a small frame is reconsidering his retirement plans.
After his 2017 season was cut short due to arm and knee injuries, Darren Sproles knew he didn’t want to retire without one last chance on the field. Howie Roseman didn’t want him to end his career on that note either, which is why he decided to sign Sproles to a one-year contract in the offseason. At the time of the signing, Sproles said that this would be his last season on the gridiron, and wanted a chance to improve his all-purpose yards totals to pass some legends on that list.
After suffering a hamstring injury that sidelined him for most of this season, it seems that Darren Sproles didn't like how this season has played out, and he hinted to reporters he might be reconsidering his retirement.
On Sunday, a new report came out that Sproles has told teammates he is seriously considering returning in 2019.
Sproles has played a key role in helping the Eagles get into the playoffs. He has recorded three touchdowns since Week 13, and had played a big role in the passing game as an extra blocker at times for Nick Foles.
He doesn't have a contract for next season, but if he wants to come back to Philadelphia, Howie Roseman will find a way to get him on next year's roster.
