    COULD JEREMY SHOCKEY RETURN TO GIANTS?

    COULD JEREMY SHOCKEY RETURN TO GIANTS?

    "Following a bitter breakup with the New York Giants, could
    veteran tight end Jeremy Shockey find his way back onto the
    team’s roster this season? Shockey remains without a job, receiving little
    interest on the free agent market this year, and according to the
    New York Daily News
    , contacted the franchise in March expressing his desire
    to return. New York waived injured tight end Jake Ballard last
    week and he was quickly picked up by the New England Patriots.New York had the
    intention of re-signing Ballard after waiving him and eventually placing him on
    injured reserve for the season.


    The Giants acquired former tight end Martellus Bennett in
    free agency this year, signing him to a one-year deal worth $2.5 million
    dollars. Bennett’s best season with the Dallas Cowboys came in
    2010 when he recorded 33 receptions for 260 yards. Bennett reported to Giants
    offseason workouts this summer weighing in at 291 pounds, significantly more
    than his 265 pound playing weight in years past.




    Ballard’s teammate, Travis Beckum is currently rehabbing his
    knee after undergoing ACL surgery after the Super Bowl and could start the
    season on the PUP list, a move which would ensure that he will miss the first
    six games of the regular season.




    The Giants currently have five other tight ends on their 90-man offseason
    roster. Christian Hopkins, Larry Donnell,
    Bear Pascoe, Ryan Purvis and Adrien
    Robinson
    .




    Shockey’s best seasons have come during his time with the Giants and will
    turn 32 this August. Bennett holds the top tight end position during offseason
    workouts, but given the weight issues he brought to camp, one has to wonder if
    he can become the vertical threat the Giants are looking for from the tight end
    position.




    Shockey’s game his diminished with age, but there are few remaining tight
    ends left in the free agent market. Shockey burned bridges with his departure
    during his first stop with the Giants. Is it possible that the coaching staff
    overlooks his past history while filling a possible need for the Giants? If
    Bennett struggles, it’s possible that the Giants staff could let bygones be
    bygones and make Shockey’s phone ring."

    Maybe when pigs fly. We'd have to have ZERO benefit from the guys we have for Shockey to resurrect his career here, IMO.

    I highly doubt it, but wouldnt be opposed to it for vet min and incentives.

    Thomas Richard Coughlin is a saint!

    I am completely in favor of bringing in a former Giant TE to shore up the position . . . . . Visanthe Schiancoe.

    ha, wow that just shows how deep we are in the offseason ... they can't find anything to write about




    Shockey is way past his prime, so even if he came in here all humble and willing to accept any role ...it still wouldn't be worth it and we all know that he can't do that ... he can't make a catch and hand it to the ref ... he's a 15 yard penalty waiting to happen ... he can't just be quiet in the huddle ... he can't just go to the sidelines quietly ... it's just not who he is ... but despite that ... in his prime it was fun watching him do his thing ... but this is a young man's game
