Kendrick Clancy knows where his bread is buttered.

Kendrick Clancy
For 10 years, he has made a nice living out of a singular talent. He's a run stuffer. It's been his special skill since he played at Holt High School in Tuscaloosa, Ala. He should list it as his occupation on his income tax return.

He knows his ability to anchor the line of scrimmage, eat opposing blocks and stuff ball carriers is what led the Saints to call him back for another tour of duty this past weekend.
Clancy is with the New Orleans Saints again for one reason and one reason alone, and it has nothing to do with his ability or lack thereof to rush the passer.
"Stop the run -- that's how I spent 10 years in the NFL," Clancy said. "That's what I do."
And clearly that's what the Saints need done.
If the Saints were satisfied with their run defense, they certainly wouldn't have called the former Ole Miss standout. After all, the 32-year-old lineman is coming off microfracture surgery on his right knee and was considering retirement when his agent's phone rang.
Clearly, the Saints have concerns.
The preseason numbers aren't all that bad. The Saints' defense ranks 11th in the NFL in rushing yards per play (3.49) and is tied for eighth in rushing yards per game (80.3).

I take it that it was the injury that caused the letting go of Clancy.it sounds as though coach Payton has faith in him,but he's concerned about the knee still.lets give him that 10 day trial run and see what happens.we were able to stop a few pretty good running backs last year,maybe not to a hault but we @ least slowed them down enough to keep them from having amassed huge yardage totals by games end.I can't wait for us to be able to deny backs from getting the easy one yarders too!GW will get it right
