Philadelphia Eagles running back Darren Sproles shared that he will be hanging up his cleats after this season, according to the Eagles via Twitter.
Sproles hasn’t played since the Eagles matchup against the Bears this season, adding to the struggles he has faced the past year.
Amid his season-ending injury, Sproles will close the season with 66 yards and zero touchdowns. Not the best way to retire, but he’s had a fabulous and Hall of Fame worthy career, nonetheless.
Last year Sproles contented his endeavor of moving to the fifth rank for all-purpose yards in NFL history at almost 20 thousand. Majority of the players on that list have been introduced in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
“To Eagles fans everywhere, I want to thank you for the way you supported me every single day. I could feel it. You made my time here special,” stated the 36-year-old.
