Expect the Eagles, with quality depth at running back, to prioritize Sproles' health first and foremost this season.
The rich got richer on Friday as the Eagles agreed to terms with veteran running back Darren Sproles on a contract for the 2019 season.
The 5-foot-6 back was contemplating retirement this offseason, according to CBS Philadelphia, but made a decision to return to the City of Brotherly Love for a sixth season.
The past two seasons have been the toughest of Sproles' career, as he's battled injuries and lack of playing time. He returned for the 2018 campaign only to miss another 11 games due to a hamstring injury.
"My heart is in Philly", Sproles said in a news release.

The Eagles gave Carson Wentz a four-year, $128 million extension in June.
Of note, by signing Sproles, the Eagles only have one roster spot remaining on their 90-man unit.
"We are excited to bring Darren back", the Eagles said in a statement. "It isn't very often that you have the opportunity to add a player who has the sixth-most total yards in National Football League history". "He is the ultimate professional, and a leader on and off the field". His dynamic punt return skills are second to none.
Sproles had discussed retiring after the 2017 season, the year he sustained a torn left anterior cruciate ligament and broken right arm in Week 3. "I can't wait to get back with the guys".
He's now sixth all-time with 19,520 yards, within striking distance of fifth-place, where former Raiders receiver Tim Brown sits with 19,682 yards.
