Deuce McAllister Set To Retire Following Postseason Play

With the Saints a game away from the Super Bowl, Deuce McAllister has a chance to go out on top. And he is going out, be-ringed or not, telling the Jackson Clarion-Ledger this postseason will be his last in the NFL:

"I was pretty well content and ready to retire before all this came up," McAllister said. "I have to be real with myself. I don’t know that I could come back with my knees the way they are. I don’t know if I would need another surgery."

McAllister is also toying with the idea of remaining with the Saints in some sort of front office or coaching capacity, a notion that will surely sit well with the fanbase, given the high level of sentiment in the city for their all-time leading rusher.
