I don't think he has the ceiling that Michael Turner had but I think he could be in a 1-2 punch like Lenwhale/CJ etc, and I think a team would pay him a lot more than the Chargers would to leave.

I could see a team like New England go for him. Gives them a great KR and a guy who is deadly on dump offs and screens. Him and Moroney could be a good 1 2 punch

Probably, he would be rediculous with Randy Moss taking attention off him him deep.

Definitely not a Turner, but he should cash in nicely as a KR/rotation runner.

How I would love for the Cardinals to grab Sproles, although it's only a pipe dream. I would do dirty, dirty things for a duo of Hightower and Sproles.

You guys have like 40 million in cap so I wouldn't be shocked if you guys get alot of people this year.

yeah they could use something to balance out that backfield. People were all over Edge for a while. But he averaged 3.9 a carry this year. Tim Hightower? 2.8! Who knew!

Seriously, I would LOVE Sproles to become a Colt

Yeah. That's not the Colts style though. They seem to be content signing their own guys, and signing low-key free-agents. Do the Colts even have enough cap space to try and go after any key FAs?

Hightower primarily had all the goal line carries and 3rd & short situations at the start of the year.

The cap situation is not the best, and we wont go after him, just in an ideal world it would be a good fit, I'd drop Dom Rhodes for him.

Yeah if gets offered that starting job he is gone, hes already stated this year he wants to be that main back and doesn't want to be just a special teams player.

I think Sproles would be perfect in AZ. He would give them a Marshall Faulk type of receiving threat** coming out of the backfield. If Kurt Warner and Boldin stuck in AZ that would be an absolutely lethal offense.


** I am in no way comparing Sproles to Faulk as a RB, only as a receiving threat out of the backfield.

I can't see any team giving him a chance to be a starter.

Arizona, Seattle, Tampa, Detroit, Cleveland, Indianapolis might be interested after Addai just stunk so badly, Denver, Kansas City

There's a few places out there that could use a little lightening.

Damn. And they are coming off a season where they reached (and might even win) the super bowl.
Sproles, Hightower and maybe Edge would be a killer backfield
