Eagles RB Darren Sproles plans to retire after 2017

ESPN - [Full Article]

Darren Sproles is 33 years old, and he is really beginning to feel the pull of family.

His two daughters are "getting to the age that they want their daddy around more," Sproles explained, and so he has decided that next season will be his last in the NFL. That was the thought when he inked a one-year extension through 2017 this summer with the Philadelphia Eagles, and it remains the thought as he gets set to complete his 12th season in the league.

Fantasy Impact: 

His hope is to remain in Philadelphia for the swan song -- he has grown close to many of his teammates and is fond of the coaching staff -- but noted that whether he's back in an Eagles uniform next season is out of his hands.
