To take McAllister's roster spot, it's been widely rumored that former LSU Defensive Tackle and rookie undrafted free agent Marlon Favorite has signed with the team. Favorite's twitter page first broke the news.
The news that the Saints signed Favorite tells me three things. 1. They're preparing to have bodies on the defensive line in an effort to stop Peterson. 2. They Saints may be unhappy with Bobby McCray playing on running downs, and they need a DT with the possibility that they're moving Anthony Hargrove back to his original position. 3. The injury to Robert Meachem's ankle shouldn't keep him out of the game if they're not signing a receiver.
For what it's worth, Favorite couldn't crack the starting lineup in Carolina this year despite basically being handed the job because of a rash of injuries at the position. He was later released and has spent some time on the Rams, Chiefs and Seahawks this season. 5 teams in one season is an impressive feat, I'll give him that. Hopefully he can fulfill his potential in New Orleans.
