    New Orleanse Saints head coach Sean Payton was asked if he felt a sense of urgency to add another running back, whether it be free agent running back Edgerrin James or someone else. "Not right now," Payton said. "I know a lot has been written about that but I think the guy we're looking for may already be in the building." Even if the Saints don't bring in another running back, Thomas won't be the only candidate to assume McAllister's former role as a complement to Bush. Payton said he likes what he has seen from Mike Bell, a four-year veteran who rushed 13 times for 42 yards and a touchdown in four games after being signed in November last season, and Lynell Hamilton, who spent last season on the practice squad as a rookie. The Saints list Bell at 225 pounds and Hamilton at 235.
