Saints RB hopes to be ready for season
Les East / Baton Rouge Advocate
METAIRIE — New Orleans Saints running back Deuce McAllister’s contract situation has been resolved and he said his surgically repaired knees are on schedule to be ready for next season.
Earlier this week, McAllister and the Saints agreed to a restructured contract that relieves the organization of having to pay him a $1 million roster bonus that was due Tuesday. New Orleans no longer has to pay that money before it sees the running back in action, but McAllister can sill earn the money by being productive on the field.
“It’s pretty much the same deal,” McAllister said after a workout Tuesday morning. “We moved some salary around. There’s nothing to worry over from my standpoint. It protects me and it protects the team.” Full Story – Advocatehttp://www.2theadvocate.com/sports/saints/featured/17894284.html
