Saints Cut Deuce Loose

The New Orleans Saints have released all-time rusher Deuce McAllister. Team officials announced that they had granted McAllister his release on Tuesday morning so he could seek offers from other teams. McAllister, 30, has had reconstructive surgeries on both knees and was due over $7 million next season from the Saints, who are trying to cut player payroll in an effort to remain under the salary cap as free agency approaches.
