Free agent rumors: Rams not in the mix for Darren Sproles?

Free agent rumors had the St. Louis Rams in the thick of things for Darren Sproles. They courted him last year, before San Diego moved to keep him. Now, the Rams appear to be out of the mix for Sproles completely. 

Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune says that the Eagles, Chargers and Saints are the only three teams giving chase to the speedy pass catcher. If it's true, that represents a surprise in the Rams offseason plans. Sproles in one target that has been consistently linked to them. 

Abandon expectations all ye who follow free agency. This morning talk surfaced that the Rams had more interest in Jason Snelling and Jerome Harrison, more complete backs capable of handling 20+ carries per game. That sounds like not just a player to split carries with Steven Jackson, but one who could potentially replace him should the franchise's leading rusher deal with injuries this year. One of those two could replace him entirely after the season, though likely with a committee approach. 

And what the hell are the Eagles doing interested in another running back? 

Though I would have liked to see the Rams get Reggie Bush, the truth is they don't really need much star power. They do have Steven Jackson, in case you forgot. More than anything, they need a guy to take away some of the wear and tear as well as back him up in case of injury.
