Deuce McAllister will always be a Black and Gold icon. Maybe he will not be remembered in Canton but in the Big Easy, he'll never be forgotten.
Dulymus Jenod McAllister was born in Lena, Mississippi on December 27, 1978 but soon came to be named as Deuce or as The Deuce.
He was drafted by the Saints in 2001 with the 23rd overall pick in the first round out of Ole Miss and went on to take over for Ricky Williams whom the Saints had traded all of their picks for in a previous draft.
He currently holds the franchise records for most career rushing yards at 6,096 and the most career touchdowns at 54.
While with the Saints, Deuce was a fan favorite. Many Saints fans get chills up their spines when they recall the cries of "Deeeuuuuuccceeee" every Sunday that the Saints occupied the Superdome.
But he was released by the team on February 17th due to salary cap and injury issues (McAllister has had two major knee surgeries).
Yes, Deuce will always remain in Saints' fans memories as we remember how he made our Sundays better every week.
