NFL - Scoop Du Jour

The San Diego Chargers apparently would like to keep kick returner and backup running back Darren Sproles(notes) for many years and are trying to get him to sign a multiyear deal. But if no agreement can be made, he'll be sent out into free agency, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The team is supposedly committed to not signing Sproles for one year. Since he was the team's franchise player last year, they've got to give him a 10 percent raise if they keep him this season, which would bring the 26-year-old a salary of about $7.3 million for the coming season.

You can be sure some team is going to want a guy who scored three touchdowns last year and gained 343 yards.
