The Saints are releasing 30-year-old running back Darren Sproles, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The move saves $3.5 million worth of cap space.

On the open market, Sproles will likely garner a lot of interest. Even though he is 30, he has never been the featured back anywhere. He should have a decent amount of tread left on the tires. He could draw interest from teams such as the Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.
In 15 games last season, Sproles had 53 carries for 220 yards and two touchdowns. In the receiving game, he caught 71 passes for 604 yards and two touchdowns.
