    Yeah I'm sad to see him go in a way....I enjoyed seeing him in the black and gold. Thanks for helping us to the super bowl Jeremy, best of luck to you.

    From a business perspective it made sense. Been bugged by injuries his entire careeer and the Saints obviously felt they weren't getting their moneys worth.

    Great move.

    This is how you stay on top.

    The New England Pats formula for success. Get rid of overpaid aging veterans.

    Bill Walsh was the first coach/GM to be called heartless by cutting old dudes to keep championship teams rolling.

    Same here. No brainer as far as I'm concerned. Had one of his worst years as a pro and continues to be injury prone. Graham is the future.

    Agree. He's still got some good football left, but Graham is going to be a star.

    Good luck to Shockey. It is the right move for the Saints. Now, if Graham can only stay healthy.
