This is the type of news you'd like to wake up to, right?
Multiple reports have indicated that the San Diego Chargers will allow RB Darren Sproles to hit the open market. The problem comes from the franchise tag he received last year which means the Chargers would have to pay him 110% of that numbers (which is over $7 million).
According to the National Football Post, the Kansas City Chiefs are rumored to be interested in his services.
A league source told National Football Post that the Kansas City Chiefs are rumored to be interested in Sproles' versatile ability and return skills. Sproles, who played collegiately at Kansas State, could work in tandem there with Jamaal Charles.
The problem with this, in my mind, is that both Sproles and Charles are the same type of player. The assumption was that the Chiefs would be adding a bigger back to complement Charles.
But, hey, nothing wrong with lightning and lightning, right?
