Shockey To New Orleans

by: Michael Steffes

No one seems 100% on this yet, but Adam Schefter just said on NFL Total Access that the rumor is that the Giants and Saints have a deal in place. It includes the #40 pick and an additional pick or two. According to Mike Florio at PFT, Shockey has not been notified yet.

It would be my guess that the teams have a deal ready to go, but the Saints want to see how the draft falls. It could also be that they want to wait until Glenn Dorsey is off the board so they know they don't need those picks to get him. They have been rumored to be trying to trade with the Rams, if you haven't heard.

Either way, it appears the Hawks aren't interested in getting anywhere near the package the Saints are offering. Expect them to draft a tight end before the weekend is over. Of course, I would have said that last year too. END
