This has been talked about to a lesser degree but is not viewed with much importance since we already have a stud in LeSean McCoy.
But I am convinced that Jerome Harrison will be gone, and I'd seriously doubt the Eagles will be comfortable having rookie Dion Lewis and journeyman Eldra Buckley as the backups.
Who's available that Andy Reid would be interested in? The running back the Eagles sign will have to be okay with playing second fiddle to McCoy and only getting 5-10 touches per game.
Reid likes the smaller, shiftier runners who are good pass catchers.
The top player that fits all those descriptions is Darren Sproles. The 5' 6", 190 lbs speedster has a career rushing average of 4.6 yards per carry, a receiving average of 9.6 yards per catch, a kick return average of 25 yards per return, and has scored a total of 21 TDs.
Not bad for five year's of work in a reserve role.
He's exactly what Reid would look for in this position. Plus, the added benefit of being a kick and punt returner makes him even more enticing. The only problem is that he may be looking for a little too much money for the Eagles' taste.
Other possibilities would be Detroit's Kevin Smith, Houston's Steve Slaton (if he gets released as expected), and maybe even Miami's Ricky Williams.
