RB Darren Sproles

The Packers are in good shape with the 1-2 punch of Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams sharing the load and Kapri Bibbs back there to provide some third down punch, but they could use that smaller, home run back like Tarik Cohen is for Chicago. And who better than the original version of Cohen in Darren Sproles.

The former Charger, Saint, and Eagle may not have a ton left in his legs after 1,645 touches (rushes-receptions-returns), but he can still get the job done in spurts. With potentially just a single year left in his incredible career, he can wait for the right job to open up. And with a need for a pass receiving back and return specialist, Sproles could fit in perfectly in Green Bay.
