Saints | Haslett Pleased with Antowain Smith

The Associated Press reports New Orleans Saints head coach Jim Haslett is pleased with the performance of RB Antowain Smith. He gives the Saints even more depth at running back. "I love Antowain," Haslett said after practice on Monday, August 1. "He doesn't have great speed, but I'll tell you what he does. He's a big man first of all; he is going to run down hill. He is going to get positive yardage, and he knows his role. I think the guy can go in and play and rush for 1,000 yards. He's done it before." With starting RB Deuce McAllister and backup RB Aaron Stecker ahead of him, Smith may not see a lot of action, but if he is needed he will be ready to play.
