    Shockey would have a better chance playing pick up stix with his butt cheeks than he would returning to the Giants.

    The others are welcome if the price is right.

    People question Boss's blocking ability, but the run game was a lot better when he was here.

    Shiancoe if anyone. I like Boss but he is one concussion away from being out for most of the season if not forever.

    We resigned Ballard -- he's no longer a FA.

    It's between Shiancoe and Boss. Boss is a concussion waiting to happen, but he knows Eli and the system. Shiancoe is still a viable threat, I believe.

    For me, it would come down to who's cheaper.

    He wasn't all that good for them, he hardly played b/c he was injured most of the year.




    If they have compromable price I'd go with Shancoe. He's much more durable, a better blocker and has similar pass catching skills. If Boss's asking price is much lower then it'd be godo to have him back.
