    The Chargers backfield remains in flux.

    The team decided at the last minute to retain Darren Sproles, and A.J. Smith has said the free agent crop of runners doesn't interest him. That means San Diego needs a running back or two in the draft.

    Sproles' future with the team remains uncertain. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune writes that the Chargers would like to keep Sproles, but the team hasn't talked to him about a long-term deal lately. A trade remains possible.

    We have yet to hear much chatter about teams possibly interested in dealing for Sproles since the Chargers kept him. The same goes for Shawne Merriman, who Acee believes is available "at the right price."

    Perhaps trade talks will pick up closer to the draft, but there's little to think Sproles and Merriman will be playing anywhere but San Diego in 2010.

    Unless he has realistic expectations, unlike last year, then there is no way he will get signed long term and should be traded. Last year his agent was on the radio and was very clear that they wanted Micheal Turner type money. Sproles deserves only half of that.

    Yeah, I'm with you. Don't get me wrong I love Sprolesy but far too much dosh for a scatback, far far too much.

    I just don't want him added to the list of valued players we held onto too long rather than trading them when we have a chance and getting something for them
