One of the big questions of today’s draft is will Giants TE Jeremy Shockey be in blue at the day’s end? I would at this point have to say – no. Shockey is getting offered by the Giants to the Saints, who are offering a second-round pick and a sixth-round pick this year or a second-round pick and a fifth-rounder in 2009 for the loudmouth and often hurt TE. Why would the Saints want Shockey? Sean Peyton was with the Giants staff in Shockey’s first year, and he feels a change of scenery would do him good.
The Giants have had enough of Shockey’s mouth, attitude, and lack of production when he’s on the field. Plus they have young and up and coming tight end Kevin Boss, who can easily lead the Giants TE position. ESPN is reporting that the Saints only want to offer a number two pick, but that in the end, the deal will likely get done. Shockey was hurt last season in a game vs the Redskins, and on the season had 57 catches with three TD’s. Look for this deal to get done as the draft gets closer.
