The Philadelphia Eagles have signed all-purpose running back Darren Sproles to a two-year contract extension, the team announced.

He's now under contract through the 2016 season.

Sproles joined the Eagles via a trade from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick

Sproles figures to have a versatile role in Chip Kelly's offense.

He could form a nice tandem with LeSean McCoy.

The Washington Redskins were also interested in Sproles, but the Saints made the deal with Philadelphia.
