And now Deuce is gone

The Clarion-Ledger's having a busy news day.  After trumpeting our hometown hero's return to the Saints roster and indicating that he may actually be active if the Saints were to make the Super Bowl, an injury to Robert Meachem has led to Deuce stepping off of the roster.  Deuce will retire from football, citing bad knees:
“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.”
Deuce will still be on the field Sunday for the NFC Championship Game, and will be an honorary captain.

I saw him at Hal & Mal's a couple of months ago...to say he is not in playing shape is an understatement.
