Much to the chagrin of the New York Giants tight end D.J. shockey, the New Orleans Saints don’t want him. Not at a high price anyway. Trade talks fell apart or apparently never really got started when the Giants tried to peddle Shockey. I’m happy to say Saints management turned down the deal for one of the more unpleasant individuals in the NFL.
While Shockey has talent, he’s not superlative, and he tends to be a problem child. that’s the last thing any NFL team needs. New Orleans can use a quality pass catching tight end, but not at the expense of team tranquility. For now at least, Jeremy has not spoken in class.
