Running back Darren Sproles was traded by the New Orleans Saints to the Philadelphia Eagles for a fifth-round draft pick. Sproles requested to be released on Wednesday but the trade was finalized on Thursday.

Here is what Eagles head coach Chip Kelly had to say about Sproles, per ESPN:

"Darren Sproles is an unbelievable offensive weapon," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "He can do it all -- run, catch -- plus he's a proven winner. And on top of that, he can bring all of those dynamic skills to the return game as well. There is no question we were all excited once we found out we were going to be able to trade for him."
