Drew Brees Talked Sproles Into Signing

Check out this interview with Drew from training camp. By the sounds of it he had a big hand in turning the head and focus of Darren Sproles the Saints way.

If true this tells us that Sproles came here to win rather than just chase money from other potential suitors. I like that. I like that a lot.

With players of that calibre now attracted to the Saints on the basis of wanting to end their careers with titles that can only be a good thing. Hopefully we'll bag a few more such players and may even convince a few more of our free agents to turn down bigger deals elsewhere on the basis that this is a winning team and there are only so many 0's on a pay check that can compensate you for a Super Bowl ring.

Call me naive but if I was playing that's what I'd be thinking. Sure earn some good money for playing the game you love but retire with the title cause then the future takes care of itself!

Who Dat.


  1. I woke up to this news today, and I can't tell you how happy it made me. I've always liked Sproles.

    I am going to miss Randall Gay, some, but it will be okay.

  2. I know it's just brilliant news re: Sproles. Such a major acquisition.

    Agree it's a shame about Gay. Hopefully it will work out for him.
