NY Giants players Jeremy Shockey has been traded to the New Orleans Saints for 2nd and 5th round draft picks, according to Fox Sports. The tight end has been vocally unhappy this past season, after breaking his leg in a December game against the Redskins (and missing out on the Giants' Super bowl victory), and had complained about coach Tom Coughlin and his teammates. Also, a recent meeting between Shockey and Giants general manager Jerry Reese allegedly became a "shouting match." Fox Sports adds that the deal is subject to league approval and Shockey passing a physical.
