"Decisions like this are always very difficult ones to make," general manager Mickey Loomis said. "Deuce has epitomized hard work, leadership, and productivity throughout his career and has been a source of great pride for all of us associated with the team. His records and accomplishments on the field speak for themselves about the type of player he was in a Saints uniform. He truly ranks as one of the greatest players in our club's history, and we are very respectful of everything he has meant to the Saints and our community."
