Seahawks interested in Shockey
Posted Apr. 23 at 02:44 AM
The Seattle Seahawks are trying to trade for Jeremy Shockey, according to a report today in the New York Daily News.
The Saints have been trying to get Shockey for weeks, according to sportswriter Ralph Vacchiano. The Giants turned down an offer of a second-round pick for the veteran tight end, and the Saints weren’t interested in giving up both a second-rounder and up-and-coming safety Roman Harper.
Now Seattle has entered the fray. The Seahawks are in dire need of a tight end. Two years in a row, they haven’t brought back their starting tight end – Marcus Pollard this year, and Jerramy Stevens the previous season. Seattle selected Stevens in the first round in 2002 – the third tight end selected behind Shockey and Daniel Graham.
Atlanta also could be in the mix, according to this article, and there’s a good chance a deal will be completed before Sunday. To see the complete article, go the New York Daily News.
