Jeremy Shockey finally speaks; Giants wish he would shut up
Jeremy Shockey came out of hiding yesterday and took a few jabs at the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. He complained that the G-Men "released multiple things" about him to the media and said that unlike the Giants, he would keep quiet. Regarding training camp, the former Gator said that he isn't 100% so if he even goes, he would only be there to get treatment and rehab. Do I smell a holdout coming? Maybe Shockey is trying to force the Giants' hand and get a trade that I would assume he wants. When you think about it, he probably feels a little bit like an outsider, having not played for the whole playoff drive. He knows the fans might not be very kind to him, seeing that they could succeed with an average guy like Kevin Boss. He also sees greener pastures on other teams that feature the tight end as more of a pass catcher. (See: New Orleans Saints) Maybe the Dolphins would take a shot at him. Shockey played at "The U" and maybe Bill Parcells could help turn him into the Mark Bavaro that everyone said he would be.
