However they should have strongly considered this situation before they bought Man U. If I were them I would sell the Buc's and focus on Man U.
Yup. When I get bummed about my own crushing personal debt, I thank my lucky stars that I'm not more than a billion dollars in debt, as the Glazers are. Yikes.

imo id pass on sproles and look at chester taylor.
I would prefer Sproles, but Chester Taylor would be my second pick to fill #2 RB...but I think after OLine our biggest need is at RB. We are getting old their and injury prone, sounds like our OLine issue bout 3 years ago and we never addressed it...then the bottom fell out

Where Julius Peppers, Darren Sproles, NFL free agents will sign - Don Banks - SI.com

Lovely quote from an unnamed NFL executive:

I would expect we would sign him to a 4 year deal, I know if franchised he would have gotten 7 Mill, so probably something along the line of 10-13 guaranteed. of course I really have 0 way of knowing and am purely speculating based on what he is gonna want.

Decent point.. It may be Shanahan operating 'business as usual' because he was never shy about spending Bowlen's money!

See this is some of the crap I hate reading...and well our team has had a horrible history to set themselves up for things like, but with that being said, why should Sproles sign with the Eagles?

The Redskins had a terrible offense last season, they have a terrible punt/kick return game, and don't have a change of pace back. They need someone like Sproles to fill this role much more than the Eagles would need him.

More like Banks is a bonehead because the Iggles have no Super Bowls, McNabb tends to choke in the playoffs, they have an inconsistent offense, a playcaller who can't stop calling passes even if his life depended on it, and 3 KRs already on their depth chart.

Re: Would Dunta Robinson & Darren Sproles be 'business as usual'?

FWIW-From John Kiem at the Washington Examiner:
Finally, I talked to one veteran offensive player who expects the Redskins to sign running back Darren Sproles. But that's just based on what he knows of what the Redskins want and what Sproles offers.
