The New Orleans Saints are cutting ties with tight end Jeremy Shockey.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the Saints are terminating Shockey’s contracts.

Shockey has long been a favorite of Saints coach Sean Payton, who was the Giants’ offensive coordinator in 2002, when Shockey was the Giants’ first-round draft pick. So in that respect this move may seem like a surprise.

But the Saints loved the production that rookie tight end Jimmy Graham had in 2010, so it’s not a shock that Shockey is being let go to make room for Graham as the new No. 1 tight end in New Orleans.
Football is a pitiless business. One minute you're on all the highlight reels, the next minute some young guy takes your job.
