Jeremy Shockey is a free agent, and from the sound of it he is hoping time truly does heal all wounds. Shockey did not leave New York on good terms. During the team’s Super Bowl run in 2007, he suffered a broken leg and was not able to play down the stretch of the season nor in the playoffs. Many believe that distanced him from the team. Then, there was also his discontent with the way the Giants were using him, as Shockey believed he should do less blocking and more pass-catching.

According to the NY Daily News, Shockey is now interested in reuniting with the G-Men. Amani Toomer, one of the tight end’s former New York teammates, thinks that would be a terrible idea.

When a few people responded to Toomer and predicted he would think better of the tweet and remove it, Amani answered with the following: “Don’t worry about it. My tweet is not going anywhere. I stand by what I said.”

Although not surprising, those are some pretty strong words from Toomer. As Drew Brees will tell you, Shockey can be a bad teammate at times and needs to be put in his place. As far as whether or not he’s a bad person, Jeremy did save one of his Panthers teammates from choking last season, so we have to give him credit for that. In any event, if he truly did tell Jerry Reese he would never play for him again the Giants should just ignore him. Actually, they should ignore him regardless. If I remember correctly, the G-Men had a pretty good thing going last season.
