ESPN.com (sports.espn.go.com) is reporting that the Saints have acquired TE Jeremy Shockey from the NY Giants in exchange for 2009 2nd & 5th round draft picks.

Good pick up New Orleans (that is, if Shockey stays healthy).

Probably not that much of a coincidence it's the same picks as the Jason Taylor deal, though not staggered years. That one set the market for this deal, and (according to Peter King) probably does the same for any possible Farve deal.

Those last 6 words are the ones that follow Shockey around all the time.

Good loss for New York. Shockey was a distraction and a liability when playing as of late.

That said, as an Eagles fan, I'm perfectly fine not playing the Saints this year.

It's the very definition of "addition by subtraction". Shockey's a talented TE... when he wants to be. The problem is that he takes too many plays off and blames everyone but himself whenever something goes wrong. The fact that Eli improved a million times during the postseason after Shockey was on IR showed how much better off he was without the distraction.

The Giants aren't a better team now, but at least they're one without a big headache heading into the preseason. In the end, I think it works well for both of team. The G-Men will still be a solid offensive team with a healthy Plaxico Burress and a good running game. And Shockey will fit right into the Saints and probably make them a playoff team with a powerful offense.

I wouldn't go so far as to call the Saints a playoff team yet. What's to say that the trade to New Orleans suddenly turns Shockey into a model teammate? What's to say he won't be as big a pain in the ass there as he was in New York?

Good trade for the Giants. After making the heroic catch at the Super Bowl, it would have been a shame to make Tyree ride the bench again.

The Saints overpaid if you ask me. 2nd and 5th rounders for a 28 year old with injury and character issues is pretty steep even if he had proven himself one of the best TEs in the league when healthy, which he pretty much hasn't.

He'll improve the Saints I'm sure, but I don't think he's by any means the final piece needed in the Saints O as some folks seem to be suggesting out there.

As an Eagles fan I couldn't really give much of a crap. I enjoyed hating on him on account of his being a tosser, but in terms of who hurts us on the field I'd much rather see the back of Burress or Osi.

Kevin Boss will be just fine playing tight end for the Giants. Shockey has always been a love/hate player for me and while I enjoyed him at times, I don't think I will miss seeing him in the blue uniform.

Which is worse, Shockey roaming New York City's bars, or Shockey roaming the French Quarter?

Giants definitely cut their losses here, He's been GOOD at times, but a liability most of the time. And, like pieman said, Kevin Boss seemed like the real deal last season.

I personally preferred Boss last season. He is a solid TE and I don't think he's going to be exposed as a fluke. If they plays are set up for him, and he is there, he seems to make the play. He might not create a play from a garbage situation - but I don't think they are that kind of team any longer. Eli has come a long way.

Boss showed he can catch the ball in big games. Shockey showed he can drop the ball and yap his mouth in big games. I'll take Boss and the draft picks.

This is now 100% Eli's team ... no more Shockey, Strahan or Tiki ...

Plus, the #2 pick could be a #1 in Vilma (traded from the Jets) plays in a certain amount of snaps this year. If that happens, the Jets get the Saints #2 and then the Giants get the #1. So, if Vilma plays well and Shockey gets hurt, the Saints could be without a #1 and a #2.

I am glad to see Shockey go and feel that this will help Eli immensely in getting rid of the last of the me-first players (hey Tiki, how ya doing?).

Hee, it would be such wonderfully delicious karma if Vick got himself booted from Virginia Tech, saying, "It's OK baby, I'll just go on to the next level", didn't get drafted and then didn't even catch on with any NFL team as a free agent.
