Hawks Sniffing around Shockey??

Mike Garafolo of the New Jersey Star Ledger is implying that the Hawks were one of the teams supposedly asking about Jeremy Shockey. This is from his blog...

Also, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting former Falcons TE Alge Crumpler is close to signing with the Seahawks. Hmm, I wonder if Seattle nosed around any other teams to see if they were interested in trading their veteran TEs who have been rumored to be on the outs (hint, hint!).
Why not just say it? It has already been released that the Saints were asking about him. Shockey is a handful, no doubt. He would however change the demeanor of this offense. That said, would he claim Holmgren got outcoached if the Hawks lose in NY next year? I think this is the least likely of the three scenarios: Crump, Draft, or Shockey.
