New Orleans' diverse backfield: The Saints have one of the NFL's most versatile corps of running backs. Pierre Thomas is an agile back that can run inside or out, Mike Bell is a power rusher between the tackles and Reggie Bush is a change-of-pace runner that can bounce it outside for explosive plays or make catches in the passing game.
