Anniversary Of Deuce's Drafting
Thursday marked the 10-year anniversary of the New Orleans Saints' drafting of Deuce McAllister. A total of 20 former Rebels have played for the Saints -- more than any other NFL team -- and two of those, McAllister and Archie Manning, are among the most popular to ever wear the Black and Gold. Deuce spent all nine of his pro seasons in NOLA, made it to three Pro Bowls and remains the Saints' all-time leader in rushing yards and TDs. The Times-Picayune's Mike Triplett did a great article looking back at McAllister's successful career in the Big Easy, while the Saints' official site reported on his continued impact in the Gulf.
