Darren Sproles is in Eagles training camp with the rest of the 2019 Birds.
And he’s back for his 15th NFL season because he lost a bet to his 10-year-old daughter, Devyn.
“She’s a sprinter,’’ Sproles said yesterday after the Eagles’ first training camp practice. “She and I made a bet early in the track season. She said if she made it to the Junior Olympics, I had to play again. … Well, in June, she qualified. Right after the race, she was like, ‘Daddy, you’ve got to go back and play again.’ I said, ‘Yeah, I guess that was the bet.’ “
The 5-6, 190-pound Sproles ranks sixth in the NFL in all-purpose yards with 19,520. Sproles has 2,875 on punt returns and 8,352 on kickoff returns in addition to his rushing and receiving totals.
