Where will Ex-New Orleans Saints Shockey End Up?
Written by 

Ed Staton--Louisiana SportsA day after he was released by the New Orleans Saints, tight end Jeremy Shockey said he is drawing interest elsewhere.

Shockey said he had a physical scheduled for Thursday with a team that is interested in him. Curiously, he didn't mention the team.

Shockey is presumably healthy enough that he can pass a physical, but he's no stranger to nagging injuries that have slowed him down or taken him off the field. He missed three games in 2010 and has never played all 16 games in any season.

Shockey, who will turn 31 in August, had career lows in catches (41) and yards (408) last season.

What others say:

“Shockey could make sense for the Dolphins, a team that is likely to add a tight end this offseason. The biggest question may be how much Shockey really has left in the tank as a 30-year-old who’s coming off career lows in catches and yards.”

Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk

More likely there will be three or four teams who will offer Shockey a contract in the range of $2 million a year for the next two years with an option for a third year. Shockey was scheduled to make $4 million with the Saints in 2011.
