The Washington Redskins are currently attempting to arrange a trade for New Orleans Saints' running back, Darren Sproles according to Adam Schefter.

Sproles has had a difficult week as he has become disgruntled with his current employers and has asked to be released rather than traded to a team that is not a contender.

However, despite Sproles' wishes, it appears that the Saints' may be about to trade the runner away. Schefter reported: "One team making a push to trade for Saints RB Darren Sproles: the Washington Redskins. Sproles would be dynamic in Washington's backfield."

It is not clear whether the Saints would be receptive to an approach from Washignton for the veteran at this stage.

It had been rumored earlier in the week that Sproles would retire rather than accept a trade to a non-competitive team for next season.

The Redskins finished with the second worst record in the NFL but do not posses a first round draft pick due to their 2012 trade with the St. Louis Rams.

That Rams trade gifted the Redskins with quarterback, Robert Griffin III who could form a formidable partnership with Sproles if a trade was agreed.

With Sproles and family very unhappy with the situation in New Orleans, a swift resolution should be forthcoming in the next few days.
