With contract done, he can focus on regaining full strength

MikeTriplett / New Orleans Times-Picayune


Deuce McAllister said he and the Saints both came away with some protection after he agreed to restructure part of his salary and bonus payments into incentive clauses for the 2008 season.

The Saints are protected from paying their veteran tailback's full salary if he is unable to return to form after surgeries on both of his knees last September.

And McAllister has a little more long-term job security. The team will now be less likely to cut him, even if he is limited by the injury during training camp.

"I don't think there was ever any doubt of me getting a shot (to come back from the injury)," McAllister said Thursday. "I think it was more so working to figure out how we can both be protected in this thing, because I plan to be here for more than just this year. I've still got a few good years left in me."
