More specifically, it has quite a bit to do with McCoy’s health. A year ago, McCoy led the NFL in rushing. He carried the ball 314 times for 1,607 yards. That works out to a robust 5.1 yards...

VIDEO: Darren Sproles returns all of the punts

One special point of emphasis for Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly this offseason will be special teams. That means paying attention to the single most dangerous plays in the NFL: punt and kick returns. In no other situation can fortunes change so quickly.

The Philadelphia Eagles are planning to give Darren Sproles 6-8 offensive touches a game according to Philadelphia Inquirer. With the Saints, Sproles average 9.54 touches a game over the last three seasons. Approaching 31 he is slowly but surely losing some of his speed.
