Chargers tag RB Sproles as franchise player

The Chargers took a major step to resolve their running back issues. They designated Darren Sproles as their franchise player, which will limit his free-agent options but guarantee him $6.621 million for the 2009 season.

Most believed the Chargers couldn’t afford to pay both Sproles and starting RB LaDainian Tomlinson. But the Chargers made sure they could.

Also, the Buccaneers officially tagged WR Antonio Bryant as their franchise player.

Wow . . . I thought tagging Max Starks was nuts.

How do you tag Sproles but not Michael Turner the year before???

They clearly screwed up last season and didn't want to do it again.

Do you think Sproles is worth over $6 million for one season?

I don't.

They DIDN'T tag the MIGHTY MAHAN?!?! What are they thinking???





Is Bryant the guy that Chucky Gruden disliked?


Sure seems like they are cleaning house, going in a new direction over there in Tampona Bay
