Eagles hope to play Darren Sproles in the slot

Darren Sproles is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL, and his head coach understands that. The problem is Sproles is buried on a depth chart with both DeMarco Murray and Ryan Matthews in front of him. Well now his coaches are trying to experiment with him and get him on the field anyway possible. 

“Just another versatile player,” Kelly said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s Year 2 for him, so I think he feels really comfortable in terms of what our running backs are doing. So we are just kind of cross-training him like we do some other guys in terms of how do we get our best players on the field and put them in different situations.”

Eagles are even willing to play him at slot receiver. 

“We’re just trying to get more stuff for me to do,” Sproles said. “We’re going to get me out wide and stuff like that.”
