Saints to Look to Add Power Running Back this Offseason?

With Deuce McAllister gone, what will the Saints do next in the running back spot? One thing they may look to do in the draft or free agency is add some type of power back. Pro Football Weekly talks about the team doing just that in a recent tidbit:

While adding pieces to the defense will be the Saints’ main focus this offseason, head coach Sean Payton said he’ll be looking to for a power running back in free agency or the draft to be used in 3rd-and-short situations. He admitted to having some concerns about the durability of his top two rushers, Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas, and will pursue a back with “some size” and “staying power inside (the tackles).”
