Report: Sproles Was Set To Visit Chiefs, Chargers Tender Him Instead

And free agency has just taken another major hit.  

Expecting to be one of the top five players available, Darren Sproles will not become a free agent, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Acee reports the Chargers will place the highest tender on Sproles meaning it will take a first and third round pick in addition to a new contract in order to pry him away.

Want to hear the hard part about all this?

Acee reports Sproles was scheduled to visit the Chiefs this weekend as well as the Rams, Eagles and Redskins.

It's still possible that the Chiefs could trade for Sproles at a cost lower than a first and third round pick. Remember, that's what they did with Matt Cassel last season.
