NEW ORLEANS – The wife of former Saints running back Darren Sproles left a profanity-laced tirade on Instagram, slamming the team’s front office for what she claims was a reneged promise to let Sproles become a free agent so that he could go to the best situation for him.
Sproles was widely rumored to be on the chopping block, but just as many reports had him being shopped before chopped. The end came with the Saints getting a 5th round pick from Philadelphia for the former Pro Bowl offensive stalwart.
Michel Sproles apparently decided to vent her feelings on Instagram in a posting that CBS reports included several obscenities.
“I am so disappointed in the Saints organization and the way they are treating my husband,” the post says. “To verbalize to him that they will release him so at least he can choose the team he wants to spend his last few years in the NFL on & then take it back is #$@%#’ed up.”
It gets even worse, but, as she claimed in a later exclusive with TMZ, Michel Sproles did not take the Who Dat Nation to task, merely the front office. In fact, she warned fans that the front office’s moves would harm the club and its fan base. She also said that she wished she'd have expressed herself differently, but when someone is hurt, they express themselves as they normally wouldn't.
