New Info On Shockey Deal

Posted by Mike Florio on March 24, 2008, 10:20 p.m.
In response to our blurb regarding a report in the Newark Star-Ledger that the New Orleans Saints offered a second-round pick and safety Roman Harper for Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey, a source with knowledge of the discussions tells us that the Giants wanted a two and Harper, and that the Saints refused.
We don’t know what if anything the Saints offered for Shockey. But the fact that the Giants articulated a trade request for Shockey tells us that they’re willing to move on without him.
And for good reason. He has been a disruptive influence in the organization, and we think it’s no coincidence that quarterback Eli Manning came of age once Shockey was done for the year with a broken leg.

  1. It is a shame how Jeremy Shockey has been a disruptive influence on the Giants. He should have contributed more to the team. I have a feeling that the Giants did great this year – – winning the Super Bowl – – because Shockey was unable to play (because of his broken leg). If the Giants do trade him to another team, I just hope that Shockey uses that opportunity to make a fresh start, & behave accordingly.
