Yeah, so maybe there are better ways to go about getting a job in the NFL.

Jeremy Shockey, the free agent tight end, is probably to stick with that title for a while. On Sunday night, Shockey went on a brief TwitteRant against commissioner Roger Goodell, claiming (though not very coherently) he “lied to every player” regarding concussions.

The no it all Rog goodell lied to every player and told us concussions will not effect us in life that a LIE!en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_is…

(He used Wikipedia as his source, so you know he means business.)

(That was sarcasm, by the way.)

The 31-year-old then followed that by hinting at the concussion issue percolating in the league, and, rather morbidly, predicted the age of his death.

Science tells me I’ll be dead time in 54yrs old!! What would u do?

He continued…

It would be great to give the health study on NFL players on a commercial during the games!! just want the fans and congress to know! FACT

Shockey, the former Giant, Saint, and, most recently, Panther, has drawn little interest on the open market, save for a kicking of the tires by the Eagles, who’ve yet to work him out.

Nevertheless, he, forever grateful, is still keeping an open mind.

I’m in shape. Unfortunately, it’s the wrong one!!Thinking what team if any I should play for!! Really lucky I’m able to walk
