It's been an eventful day for Jeremy Shockey.
First, a report by Gary Myers of the New York Daily News stated that the tight end wants to return to his former team, the New York Giants. Shockey, who played with the Carolina Panthers in 2011, is currently an unrestricted free agent. The Giants are in need of tight end depth - both Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum tore their ACLs in the Super Bowl XLVI victory over the New England Patriots. The team addressed this need by signing former Dallas Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett to a one-year, $2.5 million deal yesterday. But would they consider a reunion with Shockey?
This is also the same Shockey whose tenure with the Giants included constant whining whenever quarterback Eli Manning didn't get the ball to him. It all came to a head after the 2007 Super Bowl-winning season, when Shockey got into a shouting match with General Manager Jerry Reese. Reese then traded Shockey to the New Orleans Saints prior to the 2008 season.
