Veteran Lamar Smith signed a one-year contract with the Saints a day after fullback Terrelle Smith agreed to a four-year deal with the Cleveland Browns.
Lamar Smith signed a one-year contract for the minimum veteran's salary of $760,000.
Lamar Smith, a 10-year veteran, and recent free agent signee Aaron Stecker will provide depth behind starter Deuce McAllister. The signings of Smith and Stecker give the Saints three experienced backs and eliminates the need for help at the position in next month's NFL draft. Smith, 33, joined the Saints late last season and rushed for 61 yards on 11 carries in four games.

Wow, Deuce better watch his back or Lamar will steal his job!
Good job Saints - adding depth to the position you need the least amount of.
"Yes, let's add another RB to sit on the bench while Deuce does his thing rather than spend money on upgrading our weak positions..."
