Eagles HC Chip Kelly scoffed at the perception that Darren Sproles is more of a slot receiver than a running back.
“All of our running backs are all receiving options,” he said. “Everyone thinks Darren Sproles is a receiver. He's a running back and a really, really talented running back.”
This could mean that Kelly plans to give Sproles more carries than he saw in New Orleans, where he was primarily a receiver. Sproles has a career 5.1 YPC.
