(”I’m gonna get me some of that!“)
Jay Glazer of FOX SPORTS reports the G-Men finally agreed to send their injured & irritating tight end to New Orleans for the Saints’ second & fifth-round picks in next year’s draft.
Strangely, this was the exact same offer the Saints made for Shockey during this year’s draft back in April, but the Giants turned them down. So why the sudden change of heart?
A little loud arguing between Jeremy & team officials may have helped:
During the team’s recent minicamp, Shockey reportedly engaged in a shouting match with GM Jerry Reese, just the latest controversy involving the outspoken former first-round pick out of the University of Miami.
This latest verbal embarrassment might have been the last straw. The Giants were able to win a Super Bowl without him thanks to the emergence of rookie TE Kevin Boss. And who wants to be around a guy who won’t even show up for the team’s Super Bowl parade?
