Saints Release TE Jeremy Shockey

Posted Feb 22, 2011

Shockey joined the team during the 2008 season

New Orleans Saints Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis announced Tuesday that the club has terminated the contract of tight end Jeremy Shockey.

“I’d like to thank Jeremy for the contributions he made to our team during his time in New Orleans,” Loomis said. “These decisions are never easy to make and we wish him the best in the future.”

“Jeremy played an important role in helping our team bring a Super Bowl championship to New Orleans,” said Head Coach Sean Payton. “He contributed to the success of our offense, both as a pass-catcher and run blocker, and we’re appreciative of his efforts.”

Shockey was acquired by the Saints in a trade with the New York Giants just prior to the 2008 season and played three seasons in New Orleans, catching 139 passes for 1,460 yards with six touchdowns in 38 regular season games, 34 of them starts. The nine-year veteran also played in four postseason games for the Saints, totaling nine receptions for 82 yards with two touchdowns, including a two-yard scoring grab to give the Saints a fourth-quarter lead in Super Bowl XLIV. The University of Miami product had 41 receptions for 408 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games played in 2010, a season that saw him catch his 500th career pass.
