SAINTS NOT CHASING SHOCKEY?
The New Orleans Saints are no longer interested in trading for Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey.
Saints G.M. Mickey Loomis indicated that the team’s pursuit of the volatile, but talented, tight end has ended in a Thursday interview with Sirius NFL Radio.
“It’s no secret we had some discussions with them and we just couldn’t come to a conclusion on the right compensation,” Loomis said. “I understand that. He’s a very good player and the Giants don’t want to just give him away – unless they feel like they’re getting really good value. But for the most part that’s dead. . . . I don’t anticipate that being rekindled.”
