2. Deuce McAllister (6,096)

Saints RB from 2001-2008

With their first-round pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, the Saints drafted Deuce McAllister out of Ole Miss and he played for them for all eight years of his pro career. He didn’t do much as a rookie, rushing for a mere 91 yards on the ground but he quickly made sure everyone knew that he was not a bust.

In 2002, McAllister broke onto the scene with 1,388 yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 92.5 yards per game. He put together an even better season in 2003 with 1,641 rushing yards and while the touchdowns decreased (eight on the year), McAllister totaled 102.6 yards per game.

During his eight years in New Orleans, McAllister rushed for over 1,000 yards in four of those seasons. Injuries limited him near the end of his career but fans will always be grateful to McAllister and the crazy stats he put up during his time in the Big Easy.

McAllister actually held the all-time leading rushing yards mark until the 2021 season. Let’s find out who passed him.
