The New Orleans Saints will take another look at veteran tailback Ladell Betts in the wake of Reggie Bush's broken leg.

New Orleans Saints are bringing in Ladell Betts for a workout.
Betts, who spent most of the preseason with the Saints before being released on the final cut-down day, will come in for a workout, a league source confirmed.



Betts, 31, spent his first eight seasons with the Washington Redskins as a valuable backup and fill-in starter. But the 5-foot-11, 225-pounder suffered a torn anterior cruciate knee ligament last season and just returned to full-speed work last month.

Wonder who will get cut? I would say it's a toss up between Arrington and Humphrey, unless someone is headed to IR that we don't know about...

Good move Betts is a quality player, played well in Washington when Portis was injured.

At least Betts can stop the bleeding for a while. I like the fact that he's known as an excellent pass protector.

Even if he's lost a step the fact remains that he won't be a liability when called on.

Looks like Jacobs will stay with The G-Men for now which may have been an option. Interesting that The Skins cut Larry Johnson yesterday which was a bit of a surprise. Still in my book Ladell Betts should be able to help us and should fit well with the team. In DC he was a no nonsense hard working player who always worked behind the shadows of the publicity ridden Clinton Portis.

I don't see trading for a RB though... I mean what do we do when they are all health. We just have to manage and pull one off the unemployment line. I would give up anything really.

Yeah looked like they signed Betts for around $800,000.
