Shockey for Baker???

Postby killiansjmd » Mon Jun 30, 2008 2:15 pm

From Pelzman’s latest column:

What would happen if the Jets and Giants swapped unhappy tight ends?

the Jets would have to throw in something else. Well, they do have an extra fourth-rounder in next year’s draft, from trading disgruntled Pete Kendall to Washington. See, it all ties together.

Pelzman makes an interesting case, but there are a few flaws:
1. Sure we get rid of a disgruntled player, but since when has Shockey been Mr. Gruntled?
2. How good would it be for the development of a young QB like Clemens to be yelled at by a heavily covered Shockey for not throwing his way while he was “open”?
3. If Shockey is a Jet, the whole jockey celebration / missed field goal incident becomes a lot less fun to mock.

However, we’ve discussed this before and there were many who would jump at a deal for Shockey, who is clearly the superior player of the two. Something more to chew on.

I hate trade ideas…

This obviously would never happen and the football media has nothing else to write about until the season starts.
Thanks to Metroid for the sig!
