The top topic of conversation surrounding the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants is whether tight end Jeremy Shockey will be part of the team this season. General Manager Jerry Reese doesn’t want to talk about it.

Reese wouldn’t even say whether he thinks Shockey will be in attendance when the team opens training camp in Albany on Thursday.

“I expect we’ll have 53 players when we play the Redskins [in the regular season opener] who want to be here, and are happy to be here, ready to play as a team, ready to defend the title. That’s what I expect,” Reese said, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “If that includes Jeremy, that would be great.”

Reese also wouldn’t say whether he and Shockey got into a shouting match this off-season, saying only, “A lot of it wasn’t reported correctly.”

Shockey has reportedly been unhappy with his role in the Giants’ offense, and there were widespread reports before the draft that he was close to being traded. Shockey skipped all voluntary workouts this off-season but did attend the team’s mandatory minicamp.
