Top 30 players in New Orleans Saints’ history
Deuce McAllister had a rather short career in the NFL compared to many. He played from 2001-2008 which is just seven short years. He played his entire career with the New Orleans Saints, most as the starting running back, injuries late in his career ended his career.
Out of the seven-season, McAllister surprisingly played only one full 16-game season and that was in 2003; he was also voted to the Pro Bowl in that year. Even though he played only one full season, he topped 6,000 rushing yards in his career.
He adds to those 6,000 yards — 49 rushing touchdowns, 234 receptions for 1,720 yards, and 5 receiving touchdowns. Deuce McAllister retired as the best running back in Saints history accomplishing all those stats in just under 100 games.
He averaged 62.8 yards per game for his career and 102.6 yards per game in the one full healthy season that he had. If McAllister wasn’t held back by injuries, his career could have gone further into New Orleans Saints and NFL history.
