I've been a diehard fan of Shockey since his days at Miami. As a diehard Giants for over 26 years now, Shockey has become a fan favorite all over, especially in my house. I question the mentality of Reese when agreeing to this trade. I mean a 2nd and 5th rounder for one of the premier TE's in the game that plays every down like it's his last. I'm truly disappointed.

I think he became a cancer to the team, he is very talented and based on his skills would be a great addition to any team. Unfortunately for him, the giants won the big one w/out him, so his antics no longer needed to be tolerated. sometimes thats just the way it goes.

From what I heard they could have done this deal on draft day, but wanted to see if Shockey would come around and take back his trade request. Don't underestimate the value of a second round pick, these guys have a lot of talent and come with a much cheaper price tag than the first rounders. They will definitely miss his talent and enthusiasm on the field, but in the end this is what he wanted. Its too bad things did not work out but not having this distraction to start camp will be a plus.
