When asked about the free agent's future in the NFL, Greer said he was hanging it up after 10 years. Greer then winked to the camera and said, "Had a blast."

New Orleans signed Greer in 2009, the  year they went on to win SB XLIV.

Greer tore his ACL and his MCI during the Saints game against the San Francisco 49ers in 2013. The Saints then released him on February 12, 2014. Many here thought his career was over after the terrible knee injury, and ultimately, Greer decide they were right.
