Um, no. I know McAllister is a nice fellow with a lot of athletic talent, but this is not an economically efficient use of resources. Eight years, $50 million -- which, in reality, is five years, $28 million, still the second-highest RB contract in history. It reduces McAllister's cap figure this year, but the Saints now have a league-average back taking up a big part of their cap for the next few years after 2005. GM Mickey Loomis: "In our view he's the best; we wouldn't trade Deuce for anybody, for any other running back." Even Tomlinson? Put down the crack pipe, Mickey.
