The winds of change are blowing through the Big Easy.
Stuck in one of the more precarious cap situations in the NFL, the New Orleans Saints have made a handful of veteran cuts. On Friday, the deepest cut of all came.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Saints are planning to release 30-year-old running back Darren Sproles, who played the last three years in New Orleans.
Given that Sproles topped 800 total yards and 70 receptions in each of his three seasons with the Saints, there will be plenty of interest in Sproles as a third-down back.
Toss in that Sproles' 2,696 all-purpose yards in 2011 were an NFL record, that interest will likely also be widespread.
With that in mind, here's a look at some teams that make a lot of sense as suitors for Sproles.
