JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Former Saints tailback Deuce McAllister remains optimistic about his chances of catching on with another NFL team, though he admits that several factors are working against him.
The 30-year-old McAllister said Monday he is healthy enough to pass a physical, and his agents have been in contact with some teams. But the biggest hurdle he faces is the four-game suspension he's scheduled to serve at the beginning of the season.
As much as he misses playing in the NFL, though, McAllister admitted that he hasn't been longing for the training camp experience.
