Short Yardage Fullback?

Why haven't the Saints experimented with using Charles Grant as a fullback in short yardage or goal line situations? He is very mobile and athletic for a man his size and was once a great high school running back and later played some fullback in college. He just out grew those positions. However, I don't care what level it was on even if it was pee wee league, when you share records with Herchel Walker and are named an all american then you should be given a look.
