Milwaukee, WI - The Milwaukee Brewers declined the 2011 contract options for all-time saves leader Trevor Hoffman as well as pitcher Doug Davis and catcher Gregg Zaun on Tuesday.

The moves make all three unrestricted free agents.

Hoffman, 43, had his worst statistical season in 2010, going 2-7 with a 5.89 ERA and only 10 saves, eventually losing the job to John Axford. With 601 career saves, Hoffman has more than any other pitcher in major league history, and it is unknown whether he will try to come back for another season.

Davis began his second stint in Milwaukee in 2010 and went 1-4 with a 7.51 ERA in eight starts. The 35-year-old spent 2003-06 with the Brewers before going to Arizona for three seasons.

Zaun played in only 28 games as a 39-year-old this season and batted. 265 with a pair of homers and 14 RBI. His season was limited by shoulder surgery.
