I think more what he meant is that Fujita's insight was crucial in the game against Cleveland. What he told them about Brees's tendencies led to that defense dismantling our offense. It most certainly bit us in the ass. We were a revolving door at OLB anyways. At least Fujita was solid and stayed on the field. Not nearly as much of a liability as Shanle was this season.

EDIT: I sure am gonna miss Shockey though

with Graham and Thomas at tight end this is very predictable

I'm a bit shocke(y)d, myself. I didn't really see this coming. Having said that, it would be nice if the Saints were clearing financial room for Pierre Thomas or someone like Shaun Rogers.

Actually this move helps Shockey. If he doesn't sign with a team in the near future, he will be locked out if there is a lock out and not able to join a team. This could really hurt his future.

Having said that, other teams may shy away from him due to injuries. He still may sign with the Saints again although it is very unlikely. If no teams comes calling with a big contract, I could see him playing for the Saints for 2 million next year.

Very good inspirational player much like Fujita gave a lot of character to the team. Looks to me like the injuries were starting to dog him. Also must be tough for SP he plucked him out of The Big Apple and restructured his career.
