More patchwork for the Saints
Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas
That could leave the Saints with Pierre Thomas and Bell as they try to stay in the playoff race. If you look at Bell's numbers from 2006 -- he ran for 677 yards and eight touchdowns with Denver -- you might get excited.
But get back to reality here. Bell might be able to contribute a bit, but there are reasons why he had only six carries last year, why he couldn't make Houston's roster this preseason and why he was still available in late November.
He's a very ordinary runner and he'll be joining a team that doesn't really run the ball.
