FoxSports.com is reporting that Jay Peyton and the New Orleans Saints have finally landed tight end Jeremy Shockey from the New York Giants in exchange for a 2nd and 5th round draft pick.
The Giants have agreed to trade their disgruntled tight end to the New Orleans Saints for a second-round pick and a fifth-round pick, FOXSports.com has learned. The deal is pending league approval, according to a league source. Shockey must also pass a physical.
The compensation is the same the Saints offered New York back in April prior and during to the draft … and it was turned down.
The move should help the Saints and their offense that centers around RB Reggie Bush and QB Drew Brees. Time will tell if they gave up too much for Shockey but it is a gamble that was worth taking for N.O. After Shockey was injured last year they won the Super Bowl with reserve tight end Kevin Boss doing a good job catching passes and blocking down field.
Shockey was a fan favorite in N.Y. but was known just as much for the controversial things he said off the field than his play on it. He likely will become just as big of a fan favorite for the hard-nosed fans that continue to root on the Saints.
Jeremy will very likely be bringing his brothel of hot women with him to New Orleans. If however he doesn’t he will have no shortage of finding sexy post-game entertainment in one of the gentleman’s clubs on Bourbon Street.
