Could a former fan favorite make a return to the New Orleans Saints, after five years away?

Apparently, one NFL reporter thinks that running back Darren Sproles has an open mind about a return trip to New Orleans.

ESPN's Adam Shefter, in a radio interview, said that Sproles has left the door open about a possible return to the Saints.

Sproles, who will turn 36 this month, is currently a free agent, and unsure whether or not he will even play in 2019.

Is a Sproles return to New Orleans likely?

No; but it's kind of fun to think about.

The 5-foot-6, 190-pound Sproles played for the Saints for three seasons, from 2011-2013, compiling 1,067 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns, to go along with 1,981 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.

Since leaving New Orleans, Sproles has spent the last five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles.
