    just think he is going to be out of our price range if he is looking for Chester Taylor like numbers..ill pass..we need to see what Kory Sheets can do since they are similar in running styles..and alot cheaper

    Sheets is anything but a sure thing the first year back from a serious knee injury when his calling card was speed. I'd take a shot at Sproles and hope for the best with Sheets. If they both have outstanding camps you make room for the other guy. We don't have any game breakers and that's one of many things that separates us from the playoff teams.

    If he can be had for reasonable money, then it makes sense to bring him in. As 3rd down backs and KR/PR are relatively easy to find (for everyone but us), it doesn't makes sense to pay him anything near starter money.

    I agree with this but I also think someone is going to pay him well.

    Sproles would be a good addition. We would have a permanent KR/PR that can take it all the way. And he could come in when our rookie and veteran need a break. Maybe put him on the field in a spread formation in the slot as well. He would be very useful on our offense. I would pay him if the price doesn't get silly.

    Lost in all this talk of sign this back, draft this back, trade for this back is the fact that the offensive line was beat the hell last season with nagging injuries compared to 09.

    Bring in a good solid guard move Richie to center and it will do wonders for the backfield no matter who is running the ball.

    i would love to see sproles in fin jersey have always liked him in college, he is the change of pace/homerun hitter we need. give him that similar contract to taylor, make it incentive based and lets do it. this is the spark we are missing

    I'd like to see Sheets pan out but don't think it will.

    What astounds me is the love for Sproles? He'll be 28 when the season starts which is on the downside for a RB.

    That being said; I'd rather Miami draft Jaquizz Rodgers than sign Sproles.

    anyone who is against bringing this guy in is nuts!....he solves three very big problems for the fins.....pr/kr and third down back ( and addresses our lack of explosiveness as well). Pair him with Mark ingram and sheets or hillard and I would be a happy camper!

    If/when we draft Mark Ingram, we'll have no need for a 3rd down back b/c Ingram is complete RB.

    We still need another quality RB if we draft Mark Ingram, preferbly a change of pace guy . . . even Minnesota drafted the kid from Stanford to pair up with AP. I just think you can save on a guy like Sproles who would want 4 million a year or so, and get a guy in the middle of the draft who is younger, faster and cheaper. Obviously that guy is not as guaranteed as Sproles, but I think there will be some good options in round 4.
