Around The NFL: For now, Saints hold on to insurance at running back

Compiled By Bill Coats
ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

Despite some reports to the contrary, the Saints seemingly aren't so eager to trade speedy running back Michael Bennett - at least, not yet.

The theory is that Bennett, a free-agent signee in the offseason after rushing for 3,174 in five years with the Vikings, was made expendable when New Orleans grabbed USC's Reggie Bush in the first round of the draft.

But with Bush unsigned and veteran Deuce McAllister still rehabbing after tearing a knee ligament last year, the Saints are lying low. "We've had several teams express an interest," general manager Mickey Loomis said. "All have made offers, but not good enough yet."

The Rams apparently are among Bennett's suitors, as they seek a backup for Steven Jackson while the status of veteran Marshall Faulk, still gimpy after offseason surgery on both knees, remains uncertain.

RE: Bennett

I really believe, imo, that the Saints won't trade Bennett & will cut Stecker instead ... just a gut feeling ...
