Former Saints RB Aaron Stecker is retiring from football.

Undrafted out of Western Illinois in 1999, Stecker managed to hang around for more than a decade as a key special teamer and third-down back. The fan favorite finished his career with 1,526 rushing yards, 1,175 receiving yards, 3,934 kickoff return yards and 12 touchdowns. He'll be fondly remember by fantasy leaguers for his surprisingly strong finish to the 2007 season.

Falcons re-signed RB Aaron Stecker.

Stecker will be insurance with Michael Turner likely out for a couple of games. He was released just two days ago when Jason Snelling came back.

Falcons released RB Aaron Stecker.

With Jason Snelling ready to go, Stecker is no longer needed. He had two carries for six yards and five catches for 34 yards in his two-game cameo.

Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey confirmed that newly signed RB Aaron Stecker will "get a chance to play this week."

Backup running backs Ovie Mughelli (calf), Jason Snelling (hamstring) and Jerious Norwood (right hip flexor) are all questionable. Stecker is a nine-year veteran that has picked up the system quickly, but expect a lot of work for Michael Turner. Stecker will focus on special teams.

Falcons signed RB Aaron Stecker, formerly of the Saints.

Surely it's just a coincidence that the Falcons are playing the Saints this week. Stecker will add backfield depth with Jerious Norwood (hip) and Ovie Mughelli (calf) banged up. The 33-year-old won't have fantasy value.

Saints placed RB Aaron Stecker on injured reserve with a torn hamstring, ending his season.

With Deuce McAllister facing a four-game suspension and Reggie Bush's Week 12 status uncertain, the Saints didn't have the luxury of waiting on their veteran backup and key special teamer. Stecker just turned 33, but the local favorite is a decent bet to sign on for another year in 2009.

Aaron Stecker aggravated his hamstring injury in Week 11 against Kansas City.

This led to a large role for Pierre Thomas, who wound up basically being New Orleans' feature back and scored a touchdown. If Reggie Bush (knee) is out in Week 12, Thomas might be the favorite for touches against Green Bay.

Aaron Stecker caught one pass for 12 yards in the Saints' Week 11 victory.

The Saints' backfield was dominated by Pierre Thomas and Deuce McAllister against the Chiefs, with Stecker taking a backseat. He will resume fourth-string duty in Week 12 with Reggie Bush (knee) expected to return.

Aaron Stecker is listed as probable after practicing again Friday.

With Reggie Bush out, Stecker could slide back into his third-down role. Pierre Thomas also played well last week when he got the chance. Don't be surprised to see a three-headed monster, with Deuce McAllister leading the way.

Aaron Stecker (hamstring) practiced in full again on Thursday.

Stecker will play on third downs against the Chiefs if Reggie Bush misses another game. McAllister would likely get 16-18 carries in that scenario.

Aaron Stecker (hamstring) was a full participant in Saints practice Wednesday.

The injury Stecker suffered in Week 10 against the Falcons does not appear to be serious. He should be available for normal duties against Kansas City.

Aaron Stecker left Sunday's game against the Falcons with a strained hamstring.

Stecker had three early rushes for 21 yards before leaving. With Reggie Bush set to return soon, Stecker can be dropped in all leagues.
Sun, Nov 9, 2008 06:26:00 PM

Aaron Stecker rushed two times for nine yards and caught five passes for 27 yards in Week 8 against the Chargers.

Stecker got seven touches to Pierre Thomas' three. While neither backup will be a fantasy option after the Saints' Week 9 bye, it's clear that Thomas isn't obviously ahead of Stecker on the depth chart.
Sun, Oct 26, 2008 05:49:00 PM

Aaron Stecker (questionable, hamstring) practiced on a limited basis Friday.

Stecker is unlikely to be on the Saints' game-day roster in Week 3.
