New Orleans Saints Sign RB Ladell Betts

The Saints have added a little competition in the backfield by signing former Washington Redskins running back, Ladell Betts, reports ESPN. Jason LaCanfora tweets the details of the contract:

Ladell Betts gets $50K signing bonus and [$755K] salary to join the Saints. As we first told you, Saints made initial to him offer last week...Has the chance to earn up to $1M total with incentives

Given what Sean Payton said yesterday after practice and the fact that Betts was recently in town for a visit, we knew a move to sign a running back was inevitable and that Betts was a leading candidate. 41% of you out there can give yourselves a pat on the back for voting this morning that Betts was the most likely running back candidate to sign with the Saints. 

In other running back signing news, Brian Westbrook has signed today with the 49ers, not the St. Louis Rams
