Exclamation Saints cut ties with Deuce(APRIL FOOLS JOKE)

NEW ORLEANS -- Two-time Pro Bowl runningback Deuce McAllister was released by the New Orleans Saints Tuesday morning.

The Saints decided to part ways with McAllister after he failed a physical on March 29th. McAllister, 29, is recovering from surgery on both of his knees in late September. The two sides had previously agreed to push back a $1 million roster bonus from March 15 to April 15 to give the team a better chance to gauge his health before making any financial decisions, but the Saints finally decided to part ways with the oft-injured runningback from Mississippi.

"Deuce did a really good job for us in past years," Saints coach Sean Payton said in a statement. "But we are excited about the young runningbacks that have developed over the last year. We wish Deuce all the best. He's a true team player on and off the field."

Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis declined to expand on the decision.

Re: Saints cut ties with Deuce

So this begs the question..............WHO DO WE DRAFT!!!!!!!!! Oh Boy Oh Boy could we trade up for Mcfadden? Or down for Mehndenhall? I assure you Payton will draft skill in the first round so this will be intresting, because he likes to pick BPA, and not need most of the time.
