|RB Darren Sproles |
Had he remained unsigned, he could have skipped Mini Camp fine-free.
Just as importantly, Sproles' diligent work ethic should rub off on the young players, 30 of whom will don Chargers uniforms for the first time.
The Chargers franchised Sproles after a breakout season in which he gained 330 yards rushing, 342 receiving, 1,376 on kick returns and 249 on punt returns. He scored a total of seven touchdowns.
Sproles really proved his worth during the playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. He subbed for an injured LaDainian Tomlinson and responded with 328 all-purpose yards, the third-highest total in playoff history.
The Chargers plan to use Sproles as a returner, receiver and change-of-pace back.
