Two NFL Superstar Running Backs Are Released

February 18, 2009 at 1:51 am Leave a comment


It’s nothing new. It usually comes around this time each and every year. The time when NFL teams have to part ways with long-standing, fully capable, but aging players.

The New Orleans Saints released running back Deuce McAllister on Thursday, in order to clear some cap space. Deuce has been hit with the injury bug but can still be a valuable asset to a team. He’s been around eight years but continues to say that he can play at least another three. Deuce may have a tough time finding a new home but never count out the possibility of him returning to New Orleans.

Also on Thursday, the Jacksonville Jaguars parted ways with running back Fred Taylor in order to get under the $123 million salary cap. Fred Taylor is the greatest running back you’ve never heard of and it is tough to see a guy like him get cut. Fred has been around for 11 years and not only was released due to the cap, but also because the primary carrier for the Jags has been titled as Maurice Jones-Drew. In my opinion, Fred Taylor still has the skills and the fumes in the tank to keep it kicking for another NFL franchise. Although he may not be a feature back at his ripe age, Fred can still contribute as a number two. But again, never rule out his re-signing with the Jags for a lower salary after testing the market.
