"i don't know why he keeps coming back after being banned and banned and banned. it makes no sense "
I asked myself the same question.
Whoever this person is he's a joke and for sure not a Saints fan, maybe he's a Falcon fan.

ANOTHER PIECE TO THE PUZZLE

The Saints have also signed veteran running back Michael Bennett to a two-year deal, and, if healthy, he should be a nice addition to the team.

Bennett is not an elusive runner who makes people miss.

Instead, the former Wisconsin standout has something you can’t teach, great speed.

Bennett’s best days in Minnesota were when the Vikings spread the field out in three-wide receiver sets and ran him into a quick seam.

Bennett is a no frills, open-field runner, who gets up the field fast and has tremendous breakaway ability.

The questions are how healthy is Bennett and how will he hold up running between the tackles.

Even when he topped the 1,000-yard plateau, Bennett was not a real strong inside runner, preferring instead to cut everything to the edge.

Playing on a fast surface like the one in the Superdome should be a big plus for Bennett, who is a good insurance policy in case Deuce McAllister has trouble bouncing back from last year’s season-ending knee injury.

The good news is Bennett developed pretty good pass-catching skills in Minnesota and that is a big plus in the Saints’ new offense.

Remember when Brees was in San Diego, he had great success throwing the ball out in the flat to running back LaDainian Tomlinson when he was not tracking down All-Pro tight end Antonio Gates.

The NFL is all about finding people who fit into a scheme and are interchangeable.

The Saints have some good receiving targets at running back with Deuce, Bennett and Aaron Stecker.

Now, let’s see if they don’t find a tight end to team up with Zach Hilton either through free agency or the draft.

In the Haslett era, there was always a premium on numbers and athletic ability and not much input on how well those players fit their scheme.

Now let’s see how new coach Sean Payton get these pieces to fit his mold.

Biography:
Many thought Michael Bennett wouldn’t be there when the Vikings drafted him with the 27th pick of the 2001 draft.

"We got a gift," former head coach Dennis Green said when the Vikings drafted Bennett. "We had Michael Bennett rated as the 10th player on the board … There is probably not a more explosive player on the field."

Shortly after being picked, Bennett proclaimed himself as always being a Vikings fan despite his uncle, Tony Bennett, playing for the Packers. The color purple brought him into the ring of Vikings fans, but the 27th pick in 2001 draft made him a Viking.

2004: Finished the season with only 276 yards on 70 carries and started only seven games because of a knee injury that made him inactive for the first five games of the season. Started both playoff games.

2003: Was limited to eight games and seven starts while recovering from offseason foot surgery from a Jones fracture. Rushed for 447 yards and one touchdown while splitting time with Onterrio Smith and Moe Williams. Finished the season as the franchise’s 10th-leading rushing (2,425 yards) of all-time. Reached the 2,000-yard mark in 30 games, setting another franchise record He and Onterrio Smith became the first Vikings backs to average 5.0 yards in a season.

2002: Bennett proved worthy of the “giftâ⠬? tag in 2002, when he finished as the No. 2 Viking in team history for single-season rushing with 1,296 yards. He also matured as a pass-blocker picking up the blitz and a receiver out of the backfield with 37 catches for 351 yards. Had a career-high 29 carries against Chicago (10/27) and an 85-yard touchdown run against Tampa Bay (10/3). Showed more patience and maturity as a runner. Led the NFC with a 5.1-yard average per carry and had five 100-yard games.

2001: With 682 yards and two touchdowns on 172 carries, Bennett ranked second in rushing yards among NFC rookies. An 80-yard touchdown off a screen play put him atop the Vikings leader board for longest pass reception by a running back. Had three 100-yard games and became much more of a pass catcher than he was in college, as he hauled in 29 receptions for 226 yards during the course of his rookie season.

College: Bennett entered the draft after completing his junior year, his first year as a starter after spending two years behind Ron Dayne at the University of Wisconsin. He is a dramatically different back from Dayne. Despite only 10 games as a starter, he ranked 10th on the school’s all-time rushing list with 1,979 yards.

Bennett is an extremely quick athlete, a track athlete at Wisconsin, much in the mold of former Viking Robert Smith. Set Wisconsin high school record in the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes and ran for more than 4,200 yards at Milwaukee Tech High School.

Deuce, Bennett, and Aaron; that is a very good list of RBs. This offense might put up 2002 type numbers.
