Saints News, 3/24/14: Loomis Hopes Sproles Deal Doesn't Come Back To Haunt Him

“Anytime you’re in a good place and you’ve had success, which he’s had with us, it’s definitely painful to have the team say, ‘We don’t want you anymore,’” Loomis said, via Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “But I’m not in the business of consulting players on the moves we make in management"...."When you trade him to another NFL team, which is all we can do, there’s a high likelihood you’re going to improve that team. And that may come back to bite you. That’s OK. I wish Darren nothing but the best. I know he’ll be successful, and we’ll be happy for that.”
