The Saints wanted him back but they wanted him to restructure his contract, he was making far too much money for his age and he spent a lot of this season on the sidelines. He wasn't healthy enough to play in the playoffs either.
Horn's ego got too big, and he didn't fit in with Payton's philosophy of "Team first players". He challenged the authority of his Head coach. Which is why he is gone, a lot of other players that challenge their coach would be gone as well.
