Saints Trade for Shockey?

Postby deerayfan072 » Fri Apr 25, 2008 5:23 pm

Pro Football Weekly is hearing that the Saints and Giants may already have a deal in place that would send Jeremy Shockey to New Orleans.
PFW isn't the greatest source, but ESPN's Chris Mortensen says he's heard similar rumors. Pro Football Weekly says the deal would send "multiple picks" to New York, including the Saints' second-round pick (No. 40 overall). Apr. 25 - 6:10 pm et

That would help the Saints passing attack a lot since it consists of only deep threats and burners. Colston is a big target but he is not a true possession guy. Shockey, though, would be a great security blanket for Brees.

I thought the Giants said they wanted to keep Shockey the last time rumors came about...

They still are saying it. However, if he does in fact get traded it wouldn't be much of a surprise that they said it. It's not like Reese is going to come out in the papers and say, "Oh. By the way. We're trying to trade one of the most popular athletes in New York." :-b

This is the rumor that will not die and I dismissed initially. However, it's tough to deny the overwhelming smoke (although I put zero stock in anything that comes off of PFW).

The Saints have reportedly entered the bidding for Eagles CB Lito Sheppard.
If this report is true, the Saints probably aren't all that close to finalizing a Jeremy Shockey trade. Philadelphia almost assuredly wouldn't take less than the Saints' second-rounder (No. 40). The Rams and Bucs have been the only teams involved in the Sheppard sweepstakes to this point.

Even Mike and Mike were saying they thought Shockey would probably get traded tomorrow. Surprised me when I heard that, but it sounds like it might actually happen.

When Shockey was hurt Boss played pretty good. Not as good as Shockey but solid. Maybe NY is comfortable enough with Boss and if they can get value for Shockey why not make the deal.

The Saints are going after Lito now so who knows what they do.

Giants to deal Jeremy Shockey, Saints interested in the TE?

Former Giants offensive coordinator Sean Payton has made no secret of his desire to be reunited with Jeremy Shockey. The only question now is this: How much is the reunion worth to him?

The final answer to that question will come today and will be the determining factor in whether the controversial tight end is still a Giant tomorrow morning. The Saints appear to be the lone bidders in the Shockey sweepstakes, but they've yet to come close to the Giants' asking price.

But according to one NFL source, the Saints were willing to increase their initial offer of a second-round pick to include another pick late in the draft - possibly their fifth-rounder. However, the Giants had asked for a second-round pick and safety Roman Harper and didn't seem to be backing off their high demands.
