I'm shocked that anyone who's followed Deuce's career doesn't know that.

What really impressed me about him was when I read an article about him where they said that because he was given the cold shoulder by Ricky Williams back in the day - he was adamant about welcoming Reggie Bush into the organization and helping him with anything he needed.

That sounds like a guy who takes the bitter things that lives sometimes hand out to each and everyone of us, and instead of carrying that baggage with him: he chooses to use those experiences to better himself.

I hope he would return to the Saints in a staff role some day...

OK then, he didn't work out and take care of his body as he should have.
Whatever you want to call it, the bottom line is that if he had been more dedicated to working out, he probably could have lasted a lot longer than he did.

How about... he had a bad "work-out ethic"?

I loved Deuce, but I believe Danno must be correct on this one, regarding his working-out and staying in shape. His last couple of years he showed up at training camp looking like this guy...
