New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles told ESPN's Josina Anderson on Wednesday that he would rather be released than traded by the team.
quote:

"I want to get released. I don't want to be traded," Sproles told Anderson. "I don't know where they would send me because I have no control over it, and I want to be able to pick.

"The good thing is none of the teams I'm told they're talking to are terrible. It's more than two. I feel I should have more of an idea later on today."
A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the team decided to trade, instead of release, Sproles because there was so much interest from other teams when he was shopped as trade bait.

Who cares what he "wants"? He is a commodity in a BUSINESS that pays him tons of money! One day he loves the Saints, the next day he hates them because the are bettering their team instead of releasing him.

That my friends is the definition of hypocrisy and selfishness.
