He's what Devin Hester WISHES he could be ..... IMO, keeping Sproles should be AJ's first priority

i used sproles a little in fantasy, but it always seemed SD didn't know what they had in him. Looked like they finally realized last night. LT looked like he was having a hard time watching.

First priority will be sign Rivers to an extension. Second is sign Merriman, and VJ to extensions.

Then comes Sproles.

Remember he will become a UFA, he will be shopping himself.

The issue with Sproles will always be his size. Can he be a feature back? Or should he be part of a running back tandem? If the answer is tandem, then it's hard to justify a premium contract.

He will probably look at Hesters contract in Chicago and go from there.

What his agent would like to look at would be Reggie Bushs' output, and his contract.

He is a fantastic all around player, but not a featured back.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
