McAllister Announces He’s Retiring

The end has finally arrived for long time Saints running back Deuce McAllister, who now says he’s retiring from pro football. McAllister, who has not played since 08, rejoined the Saints last week to serve as an honorary captain for the club’s playoff win over Arizona on Saturday.

McAllister confirmed his plans in a text message to The Associated Press. The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, Miss., first reported the former Ole Miss star’s plans on Tuesday afternoon. The 31-year-old McAllister was drafted in the first round by New Orleans in 2001. He is the Saints’ all-time leading rusher with 6,096 yards. His 55 total touchdowns and 49 rushing TDs also are club records. However, he needed reconstructive surgery to repair serious knee injuries in 2005 and 2007.
