Sign Deuce for this playoff run. Just remember, you heard it here first.


"WWL Radio, WDSU, as well as NOLA.com are reporting that the New Orleans Saints have signed running back Deuce McAllister to the active roster.

Not much is known about this situation at the time so there will surely be more to come as the day goes on. Sources currently say that recently signed defensive tackle Rodney Leisle was cut to make room for Deuce." - Danny Cox


From The Examiner



Sources confirm the New Orleans Saints have signed Deuce McAllister

By Mike Triplett, The Times-Picayune

League sources have confirmed that the New Orleans Saints have signed Deuce McAllister, one of the most popular players in team history.

In seven seasons with the Saints McAllister rushed for 6,069 yards and 49 touchdowns and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. To make room for McAllister, the Saints placed defensive tackle Rodney Leisle to injured reserve.


Stay with The Times-Picayune for details on how the Saints plan to use McAllister. McAllister had major surgery on both knees in his career.
He played three games in 2007 and parts of 13 games in 2008. In 2008, he had 107 carries for 418 yards and five touchdowns.

Don't tease me!

I am a huge Deuce fan, and always hoped he'd get one more chance and shock the world.

Not sure what he could do as a player but just think how the fans will react in the dome if number 26 walks out on the field.

Oh yes! That would be amazing. Next to Drew, he's the most beloved Saint in recent memory

Re: Will the Saints Sign Deuce McAllister?

If Sean could give him a couple of well designed plays with some running room that would be fantastic. The energy in the Dome would be tremendous. Outside of Drew he is my all time favorite Saint. Wouldn't we have to cut someone else to make room?

Re: Will the Saints Sign Deuce McAllister?

I'm all for it. Does this mean that P. Thomas is not healthy enough?

Re: Will the Saints Sign Deuce McAllister?

My guess is Rodney leslie's knee is worse off and he will be cut and that opens up a roster spot.

I hope that's not the case, but it's only been 20 days and you know the Cards D will be aiming for those ribs. Maybe they don't want to ride his ribs for 20 carries this week, and want to give him fewer carries and time to heal before next week. In any case, Deuce's legs have had a year+ to rest and maybe that's enough to get back enough of his trucking form to make this worthwhile. The dome would be crazy with him in the game at all (not that its not already gonna be crazy).
