Great move for us. We were going to cut him anyway and now might get one more draft pick this year or a conditional pick next year.

Why were the Saints going to cut Sproles?

Cap space and he has shown some signs of regressing

Great move... Mickey strikes again!!!

Landing a 5th round pick for a player we were gonna cut anyway, a 5th rounder might I add that's in what most are calling the deepest draft in the last decade!

That 5th rounder will likely bring in a late 3rd to 4th round talent!

Thing is his contract is actually rather favorable as well for teams that can spend the money on a player like him and the fact that Philly can now guarantee getting him and for a good price, it's a win win for both teams. We get another draft pick and they get a guaranteed spell back for McCoy that will never have to change their offensive plans.
