All good things do eventually come to an end. Darren Sproles has had a quality stretch of three years with the New Orleans Saints but now his tenure there will come to an end. Sproles was expected to be released but now ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Saints will try and trade Sproles.

The stuff u find out on twitter— Darren Sproles (@DarrenSproles) March 11, 2014
Unfortunately, this information comes out on Twitter and is open to the public including players like Darren Sproles. Sproles hadn't been informed of this news but he sure knows now. That's one aspect of sports that is tough to deal with. Especially with the lack of guaranteed contracts in the NFL, this is a regular occurrence.
