PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- He's back. The Eagles signed running back Darren Sproles to a one-year deal on Friday.
Sproles, 36, was contemplating retirement this offseason before returning to the Birds. The 5-foot-6 back is returning for a sixth season in Philadelphia.
He played in six games last season, scoring one rushing touchdown and two receiving.
Sproles joins a crowded Birds' backfield that features newly-acquired Jordan Howard, second-round draft pick Miles Sanders, Wendell Smallwood, Josh Adams, Corey Clement and Donnel Pumphrey.
Sproles' return gives the Eagles another dual-threat out of the backfield as well as one of the league's most explosive punt returners.
