Pro Football Talk mentions that the Saints had interest in signing either Justin Fargas or Jamal Lewis to be their No. 3 running back this season but decided to stick with Lynell Hamilton instead. Now with the injury to Hamilton the Saints are forced to find a contributing back as soon as possible.
We mentioned earlier that Brian Westbrook could be a option for the Saints backfield but he has expressed his unwillingness to play on turf. PFT mentions that New Orleans may look to bring in Jamal Lewis in the next few days given their previous interest in the veteran.
