We don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves. But imagine if you would, Vikings fans, the prospect of having Norv Turner directing an offense with Adrian Peterson, a competent quarterback, Cordarrelle Patterson, Greg Jennings, Kyle Rudolph and ... Darren Sproles?
He has not yet been cut from the Saints, but New Orleans is trying to trade him, according to NFL Insider Albert Breer. Breer also speculated that Minnesota is a "team to watch" if Sproles is cut.
The Saints still haven't officially cut Darren Sproles. If New Orleans can't deal him, one team to watch for Sproles -- The Vikings.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 11, 2014
It's still possible Sproles could be traded -- his market is robust, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
