Forrest Gump, ex- NO Saint

Apparently in the sequel to Forrest Gump, Forrest ends up in New Orleans:

To make ends meet, Forrest takes a job as a janitor in a strip club in New Orleans. By chance one of the club's best customers is a rough football player for the New Orleans Saints known as "Snake", who used to play football for the University of Alabama alongside Forrest. Snake fears for his career as the Saints are having a horrible season, and recruits Forrest for the Saints. Forrest is unsure of playing in the NFL, citing how the players are much bigger than in college and how "with all that gear, you look like a man from Mars or something". Forrest also is astute about health issues, noting that as he has aged some of his famous running ability has been sapped, but agrees to do so on the basis of providing for Forrest and his ailing wife Jenny. Forrest does have a somewhat successful career in pro football, but is soon subject to the tactics of sports agents, which he has no knowledge or care about. In the middle of a game, Forrest is told that Jenny has died. Forrest tells the Saints that he cannot be at the next game so that he can deliver the eulogy at her funeral. The Saints' management believes this to be a holdout tactic, and he is cut from the team.

Back in those days, the Saints would've signed a guy like Forrest Gump
