There is very little loyalty in the NFL, and Darren Sproles’ wife is finding that out the hard way.
Sproles’ wife, Michel, blasted the New Orleans Saints organization on Wednesday for the way they’ve handled her husband.
Sproles is entering the final year of his contract with the team. On Monday, a report said the team was likely to cut the veteran back. Then on Tuesday, Sproles found out via Twitter that the Saints were planning to trade him rather than release him.
It’s definitely been a rough time for the Sproles family to see all this play out over social media the past few days, and clearly Michel was frustrated. Here’s what she wrote:
Sproles quickly felt the heat from that Instagram note and clearly was uncomfortable. She wrote this message as a follow-up:
Michel obviously underestimated what kind of reaction her Instagram postings would have. She deleted the notes but then posted a screenshot of Black Sports Online’s post about her comments. Here’s what she said:
“Lol! Ummm I appreciate my voice being heard but this is not me. nor did I say God is gonna punish the Saints… Oh my… I underestimated the power of IG…”
It’s OK, Michel, there’s nothing wrong with expressing your frustration. Just remember there’s no loyalty in the league … especially when there’s such a tight salary cap.Google+
