Darren Sproles signs one-year extension with Eagles

Running back Darren Sproles has signed a one-year extension with the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Friday.

Sproles, 32, skipped all three weeks of voluntary organized team activity practices in May, but Eagles head coach Doug Pederson denied an NFL Network report that Sproles was the subject of trade talks during the NFL draft.

Sproles reported for the team's mandatory minicamp in June.

Acquired by the Eagles in a 2014 offseason trade with the New Orleans Saints, Sproles was named to the Pro Bowl as a return specialist the past two seasons, returning 77 punts for 952 yards with four touchdowns over that stretch.

Since joining the Eagles, Sproles has also rushed for 646 yards and nine touchdowns on 140 carries and caught 95 passes for 775 yards.

Originally drafted by the San Diego Chargers in 2005, Sproles currently ranks 11th all-time in NFL history with 17,903 all-purpose yards.
