    Sproles became one of the top unrestricted free agents available when the Chargers opted to not tender him because of the $7.3 million price tag that would have been required.



    The Chargers hold out hope they can entice Sproles to return with a multiyear contract offer. However, sources said the deep-pocketed Washington Redskins are going to be among those in the bidding for Sproles.


    It appears as though one Charger will be on the move.

    Tampering maybe? :icon_shrug: The Skins havn't been caught but they always seem to be at the scene of the crime.

    And why let him walk for nothing? At least tender him a 3rd compensation when you know all these teams are going to be interested.

    Redskins will bid on Sproles too

    It might be faster to just write a post on the big-name free agents the Redskins won't go after.

    Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Redskins will be "among those" in the bidding for Darren Sproles. Washington also reportedly wants Julius Peppers.

    A player being tied to the Redskins will help an agent drive a player's price up, so some skepticism is warranted when their interest is floated. Then again, Washington really does go after most top names.

    Washington needs some explosive talent on offense in any form, and Mike Shanahan watched Sproles up close in the AFC West for years.

    If Sproles did arrive, we wonder how Clinton Portis would embrace the move. As long as Portis problem heeds the message of Lavar Arrington's epic rant, it shouldn't be a problem.
