"That was the best situation. That was the No. 1 reason I came back," said Ducre', who said he also spoke to the St. Louis Rams after the draft. "It really didn't have much to do with being home or being far away from home. Their running back situation, I think there will be a lot of competing going on."
The Saints, who announced the signing of 14 undrafted free agents Monday, have already doubled the number of tailbacks on their roster.
They added three hefty running backs -- Ducre', Michigan's Carlos Brown (6-0, 212) and Tiffin's Chris Ivory (6-0, 222).
