Default Darren Sproles is the luckiest RB in the NFL

It looks like Darren Sproles will be staying with the Chargers. The team slapped him with a 1st and 3rd tender late today. Now he's making 110% of what he made last year.

We have running backs holdout of camp all the time. Kick and yell about not getting paid and Sproles made 6.6 million last year, 7.2 million this year. Thats almost 14 million and will get most likely 10 to 14 million when he signs a long term deal next year. Luckiest back in the league.

I never thought I'd say this but there are too many Charger topics on the main board lately. Congrats Sproles, didn't see the logic in sending him away when we had an option for a 1 year deal in an uncapped year. I'm not the Spanos' family, pay the man.

Acee our beat writer reports that long term contract talks are progressing and they needed more time so they tagged him. Nothing's guaranteed but very possible scenario.

What was up with Sproles and LT as far as YPC last year? They both stunk as far as that... Was it the line or what?

Yeah, the line is terrible at run blocking and was battling injuries on top of it.

I'm assuming the bolts are still in the market for a RB since Sproles is not a 3 down back.

Chargers should try to get Westbrook if he's healthy he would add a ton to their offense IMO.

Perhaps it's time for San Diego to use a high draft selection on a highly touted runningback...

Not much, but at least we have 1 RB back for next season. But I still see us going RB early in the draft. And I doubt we go after any RB in the FA, AJ never does anything big in the FA. We rely on the draft/UFA and it works out pretty well for us.

On the flip side, what if he gets hurt while he is on his one year deal? He could of had a long term contract to fall back on.

He is getting good money but it is still a huge risk for him.

It's not like he has much of a choice. And for his production his salary seems pretty high.

Good move for the chargers. The are Superbowl contenders, its unknown how many more years they will be. It would be very difficult to win if they don't have something at running back.

I fully expect the chargers to spend a high pick on a back. Its unknown how that back will perform, even if he does great rookie backs aren't able to handle a big load in their rookie years.

He's a nice player to have but he is definitely overpaid. Its definitely time for the Chargers to spend one of their early picks on a back.

I agree. The two biggest problems the skins had last year were a lack of Darren and a lack of Sproles.

Also their fanbase seems to be completely clueless.

In 2 years he is set for life. Anything he gets over and above that is just pure gravy. I see your point, but in 2 years of spot duty he has earned about as much as any back in the league. He is basically getting paid like he is the best back in the league and taking the pounding of a 3rd stringer.
