Shockey traded to New Orleans

The New York Giants have agreed to trade disgruntled tight end Jeremy Shockey to the New Orleans Saints for a 2009 second- and fifth-round pick, according to FOXSports.com. The deal is pending league approval, and Shockey must also pass a physical.
Our View: If this trade gets finalized, it would cause a significant ADP ripple at the tight end position. Shockey would receive a bump in his ranking, Kevin Boss would receive a major upgrade, and Eric Johnson takes a negative hit to his draft value.

Shockey could have a real nice year in NO if he can stay on the field.

The Saints were already my sleeper SB pick before this trade. Shockey just gives Brees another weapon.

Their offense was already very good, but they've also made significant upgrades to their defense this offseason.
If the Dolans owned BP, they'd give promotions to everyone responsible for the oil spill.

Just looking at it from a Fantasy view...this is a nice addition for Brees owners as it a big upgrade at TE for the Saints.

I think this also may take some pressure off of Colston.
