It came as a surprise to many Saints fans: Jeremy Shockey was cut by the New Orleans Saints.
His stats were never big on the field, but he was often a big story off the field, and that's one reason why fans liked him so much.
He only had six touchdowns as a Saint, but one of them was the go-ahead touchdown in the team's Super Bowl win.
Shockey also made headlines when he collapsed at an off-season Las Vegas party two years ago. Fans found out he was okay when he posted it on his twitter account, which he also used yesterday to say goodbye to his fans in New Orleans.
