Sproles added that he had interest from some other teams, but ultimately decided to return to the Eagles.
“I feel great. Everything has been great,” Sproles said. “My recovery is right where I want it to be. I’m excited to be back. I had interest from other teams, but I knew that I wanted to come back to the Eagles. We have something special here.”

Panthers GM Marty Hurney said the team had a difficult decision between drafting WRs D.J. Moore or Calvin Ridley with their first-round pick, but they ultimately felt that Moore gives the team a “different” skill set at receiver.
“Hard decision between wide receivers Calvin Ridley and D.J. Moore,” Hurney said during an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio. “D.J. gives us a different skill set than what we have and his run after the catch is elite.”
