Jeremy Shockey: The Shock Goes to New Orleans

Mike DiMauroSenior Writer IJuly 21, 2008

Tight End Jeremy Shockey, has been traded to the New Orleans Saints.

Shockey, who was drafted in the first round (14th pick overall) by the New York Giants in 2002, played six seasons with the team. He played his college career at the University of Miami.

He was named Rookie of the Year in 2002 and was named to the Pro Bowl that same year. He would also make the Pro Bowl in 2003, 2005 and 2006.

On October 12, 2005, Shockey signed a five-year extension to let him be a Giant until 2011.

After a great performance in 2006 and most of 2007, he received an injury on Week 15 vs. the Washington Redskins. It was his left fibula. Shockey was replaced by Kevin Boss as the starting TE.

The Giants will receive the Saints second and fifth round picks in the 2009 draft.
