Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

“I think a Darren Sproles only comes around once in your lifetime, in my career and in everybody’s career,” Brees said in Orlando at the NFL Players Association player rep meetings, via Fox Sports’ Mike Garafolo. “There may be another one 15, 20 years from now. But there’s not many guys like Darren Sproles. He’s a special player, he’s a special person, he’s a special teammate.”
