Saints Remain in Search of a Power Back for Upcoming Season

The Sun Herald reports that the Saints are still in search of a power back for 2009:

With Deuce McAllister no longer around, the New Orleans Saints are looking for a bruising back to lead the way in key short-yardage situations. Four players are vying for one or possibly two roster spots with Mike Bell, Lynell Hamilton, P.J. Hill and Herb Donaldson fighting for the jobs. McAllister, the Saints’ career rushing leader was released after last season. “I’m anxious to see all of those guys,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “It’s hard to get them all work. You’ll see in practice that we’ll start clumping two or three of them in a nine-on-seven and not try to give each one of them two reps but try to give one of them a little bit more work. That gives us a better chance to look at those players.”
