Jeremy Shockey's Giants Record Broken

JeremyShockey
So what records did Odell Beckham Jr. break this time?
This could take a while. His 143 receiving yards against Washington gave him 972 for the season, passing Jeremy Shockey for the most ever by a Giants rookie (Shockey had 894 in 2002). He has 71 receptions after 12 Sunday, which is three shy of Shockey's rookie record in that category. He became the first Giants rookie ever to catch three touchdown passes in a single game. His nine TDs are one shy of the team record for first-year players set by Bill Swiacki in 1948. His 12 catches tied the team record for most in a single game by a wide receiver. Hakeem Nicks and Amani Toomer also did that, and so did Mark Bavaro and Shockey. The team record for receptions in a game is 13 by Tiki Barber. And it was his seventh straight game with at least 90 receiving yards, breaking his own record for NFL rookies and leaving him two shy of the overall record of nine set by Michael Irvin in 1995.

Position U: Tight ends: The U

ShockeyPanthers
1. Miami (84 points): While it has been relatively quiet since its positional heyday early in the 2000s, Miami still easily tops this list. With seven tight ends drafted, including first-round picks Jeremy Shockey, Kellen Winslow and Greg Olsen, the Hurricanes far surpassed the next closest programs at the position. They don’t get extra points for this, but they also produced arguably the top tight end in the NFL today in 2010 third-round pick Jimmy Graham, who's now starring for the New Orleans Saints.

Award winners: Kellen Winslow, Mackey (2003).
Consensus All-Americans: Kellen Winslow (2003).
First-team all-conference: Jeremy Shockey (2000, 2001), Kellen Winslow (2002, 2003), Greg Olsen (2006).

How much would you pay to live in Super Bowl champ Jeremy Shockey's former Weehawken home?

JeremyShockey
You may never become an NFL player, but if you have $9,000 a month to spare then you can live like one.

The 2,900-square-foot former home of one-time New York Giants Jeremy Shockey was recently sold and is now being rented out for a cool $9K a month, said real estate agent Kristin Ehrgott, of Prudential Castle Point Realty in Hoboken.

Ehrgott, whose client list includes a number of athletes and celebrities, represented the buyer, an international investor, in the $1.95 million sale of Shockey's Henley Place home.

The waterfront home boasts three bedrooms,all with full baths; a spacious balcony overlooking the Hudson River with views of midtown and lower Manhattan, a large office, formal dining room and three half-baths.

Among the amenities in the private Henley on the Hudson community is a private elevator, a private two-car garage, concierge service, outdoor pool and a full gym, Ehrgott said.

Shockey played 10 seasons in the NFL and retired after the 2011 season. His first six seasons were with the Giants, where he was a member of the Super Bowl champion team that defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

He was hurt in the season and did not play in the postseason.

Jeremy Shockey: NFL bullying 'very common'

JeremyShockey
In July 2002, Jeremy Shockey, then a rookie tight end with the New York Giants, entered a locker room full of veterans as the hotshot first-round pick with a BCS title on his resume and flowing blond hair bouncing out of his helmet. From Michael Strahan to Kerry Collins to Tiki Barber, the room was loaded with established performers and household names.

On Shockey’s first day of training camp, one of those veterans, linebacker Brandon Short, stood in front of the team in the cafeteria at the University of Albany, pointed to the rookie and said, “Name, school and signing bonus, son. Then sing.”

It was a Giants' camp tradition –a simple, good-natured hazing that every rookie had faced before him.

But Shockey wasn’t feeling it.

As he told FOX Sports on the phone Monday, “There’s a story there. I had a limo driver with one eye who was partially blind. He had an eye patch. He was swerving all over the road and didn’t know how to get to the dorms in Albany the night before. I was up all night and slept at a truck station. So that day, I just wanted to finish my food.”

Brandon Short didn’t know, and Short didn’t care.

Agitated, Shockey muttered his name. He muttered “Miami.” And then he mumbled, “$3.3 million” — his rookie signing bonus — in a barely audible tone. Short wasn’t satisfied. He asked Shockey to repeat his name, his school and his signing bonus one more time. An ornery Shockey obliged. Then, Short asked him to sing.

Shockey did it, begrudgingly. With anger in his eyes, the rookie mumbled the fight song he’d grown to love during his time at the University of Miami: “Drive on over the goal line, and on to victory. M-I-A-M-I, M-I-A-M-I. Fight. Fight. Fight.”

He finished the song and looked straight at Short. Then he added one more line: “That's for you and your hearing problem, B. Short."

The next few minutes went down as Giants training camp legend. Short swung at Shockey, Shockey swung at short, and veteran Giants tight end Dan Campbell helped break it up. The rookie stood up to the veteran, and everyone took notice.

“I would have sung the fight song,” Shockey recalls. “It escalated. He took a swing. He missed.”

After a laugh, Shockey adds that he and Short are still friendly to this day — 11 years after the incident. He notes that the Giants roster was filled with respected leaders and that was important in getting past the July dustup.

In light of the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito news this week, I thought Shockey would be an interesting guy to speak with. In addition to being the rare rookie to take a stand against a veteran, he was a senior leader on three different NFL teams over the course of 10 years.

“The bullying thing is a very common thing in the NFL,” says Shockey, who’s now retired and living in Miami. “It’s common for rookies to take the older players out to eat and to spend a lot of money. Once a week, usually a defensive rookie or an offensive rookie does it.”

“But I never did it, personally,” says Shockey. “The Visanthe Shiancoes, the Eli Mannings — I never did any of that to them.”

Weighing in on Martin-Incognito, Shockey notes that he doesn’t know either man. “If you’re thrown in the cold tub, it’s all fun and games. But for a person to
leave the facility or his employer, it must have really gone south.”

Shockey saw it all in his 10 years of NFL service. “I’ve been to dinners where I’ve seen rookies spend $30,000. $30,000! When I was a rookie, I had to buy donuts every morning from Krispy Kreme. Every Saturday and every Friday, I bought coffee. No problem.”

“But I can’t stress enough how much people should know that there’s a lot more than what you read in the newspaper. There’s probably more to this story than we know.”

As details continue to emerge, it appears there was a lot more than what met the eye with Incognito and Martin. For as much access as the media is granted, it’s often just scratching the surface of the relationships NFL players have with one another.

As a veteran on the Giants, Saints and Panthers, Shockey says he often would step in and put an end to hazing rituals when he thought they were going too far.

“Several times, I’d say, ‘This guy is here to help us. This kid is young.’ I remember several times doing that," he said. "I wasn’t a person who ever picked on another person. I wouldn’t make them carry my pads. I could carry my own pads. I could pay for my own meal.”

He never hazed Cam Newton when Newton was a rookie. He never hazed Manning.

But Shockey never played for the 2012 and 2013 Miami Dolphins.

“Remember, every team is different,” he says. “The Saints are different than New York and New York was different than Carolina. Every team has its own fraternity when it comes to rookies and stuff.”

Jeremy Shockey settles with former teammate over bogus investment deal

ShockeySaints
NEW ORLEANS - Former New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey has reached a settlement with a former teammate he sued over a bogus investment deal.

A court filing Monday says Shockey and former Saints defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs both resolved their claims against former Saints long snapper Kevin Houser. Terms were confidential.

Several teammates and coaches sued Houser for allegedly advising them to invest roughly $1.9 million to buy nonexistent tax credits from a defunct movie studio.

Saints head coach Sean Payton reached a separate settlement with Houser last month. Former Saints defensive end Charles Grant still has claims pending against Houser that are scheduled to be tried later this month.

Wayne Read, who once ran Louisiana Film Studios LLC, is the only person to face criminal charges over the investment deal.

Jeremy Shockey Sues Miami Landlord

ShockeyPanthers
Jeremy Shockey -- who once signed a $26 million contract with the Giants -- is now locked in a legal battle with a Miami landlord ... over $16,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Shockey filed a lawsuit against the landlord of a $14,000-a-month Miami beach mansion -- where he lived for ONE MONTH last summer -- claiming she's holding his security deposit hostage for no good reason.

Shockey claims he paid the landlord one month's rent, plus a substantial security deposit ... but when he moved out, she refused to return $16,000 he's owed. 

Shockey claims he left the place in perfectly acceptable condition ... so the landlord's got no leg to stand on. Now, he's suing for $16,000 plus interest.

Calls to the landlord weren't returned.

Jeremy Shockey Files for Divorce After 8 Months

ShockeyPanthers
Jeremy Shockey's marriage is just like his 2012 NFL career -- over -- 'cause he's filed for divorce after eight months of wedded bliss ... TMZ has learned.

The 32-year-old free agent -- who didn't play at all this season -- filed divorce docs late last year in Miami, claiming his marriage to Daniela Cortazar-Shockey was "irretrievably broken."

According to the docs, Jeremy and Daniela tied the knot waaay back in May 2012 ... but by October, he was already over it and they separated.

One bit of good news for Jeremy, in the docs he claims Daniela signed an airtight pre-nup that blocks her from getting a single cent -- no property, no support ... zilch.

Cam Newton, offense miss Jeremy Shockey

ShockeyPanthers
CHARLOTTE—At first glance, it would seem the Panthers haven't missed tight end Jeremy Shockey.

Greg Olsen leads the team with 43 receptions and is tied for sixth among tight ends in catches. But after Olsen, there's been a huge drop-off.

The Panthers' second-leading receiver among tight ends is Gary Barnidge, who has just three catches. Fullback Mike Tolbert, expected to pick up some of the slack left when the Panthers didn't re-sign Shockey, has 14 catches for 142 yards.

Last season, Olsen and Shockey combined for 82 catches, 995 yards and nine touchdowns. To be clear, there were questions about whether Shockey wanted to play—and it should be noted no other team signed him.

But Shockey gave the Panthers more than just 37 catches and 455 yards. He is a better blocker than Olsen—who had a rough game against Denver's Von Miller last week—and brought a nasty presence to the offensive huddle that complemented Steve Smith's fiery attitude well.

Plus, shockey gave the Panthers another safety-valve receiving option for Cam Newton, whose numbers are well off his record-breaking rookie season.

Meanwhile, Shockey is living the good life in South Beach. And nine games into the season, the Panthers' offense continues to look for answers.

Jeremy Shockey: I'm not the 'snitch'

ShockeySaints
NEW YORK -- Jeremy Shockey says he was not a whistle blower in the Saints bounties case, and that Warren Sapp's accusation he was has made it difficult for him to go back to New Orleans.

Appearing on Showtime's "Inside The NFL," Shockey said Wednesday about being "a snitch" that, "I would never do anything like that." He adds he spoke with Saints coach Sean Payton about it and Payton said, "Jeremy, just let it go."

The former tight end says NFL commissioner Roger Goodell "even came out and said I wasn't the person who did it."

Shockey says he confronted Sapp about the report the former defensive lineman made on NFL Network and Sapp replied he "wanted to stick by his source." Shockey added, "I don't think his source was all that credible."

Jeremy Shockey to Vilma: 'Tell the world I'm not the snitch'

ShockeySaints
Former New Orleans Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey had a little fun with former University of Miami (Fla.) teammate Jonathan Vilma on Twitter on Sunday afternoon.

"@JonVilma51 great seeing u last night buddy!! Pls tell the world I'm not the snitch!! Lol," Shockey tweeted at Vilma, no doubt referring to NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp's unfounded accusations back in March that Shockey was the whistleblower in the Saints bounty investigation.

Shockey, who is currently a free agent, did not appear anywhere in the documents released by the NFL on Tuesday which detailed the league's investigative process in the matter.

Vilma replied by retweeting the message and adding "lol I will bro. Good seeing u too!!!'

Boxing great Lewis goes toe-to-toe with ex-Giants star Shockey in 'bubbly battle'

New York, Oct 2(ANI): Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and former New York Giants player Jeremy Shockey were up against each other in a champagne bottle.

According to the New York Post, a source at Bellagio club Bank saw a huge crowd around their table and Shockey and Lewis at the center of the celebration being served 6-liter bottles of champagne, including a Dom Perignon costing over 20,000 dollars.

Both of them were partying after Hublot's "A Legendary Evening" gala where Shockey was outbid on several of the dozen timepieces of former champs up for auction, the paper added.

Others at the event included Mike Tyson (in a neck brace after surgery for an old injury), Sugar Ray Leonard and George Foreman, the paper concluded. (ANI)

Jeremy Shockey sounds off on Goodell, concussions

ShockeyPanthers
That sound you hear in the background is any remaining interest in free-agent tight end Jeremy Shockey evaporating.

Shockey, who reportedly has drawn interest (but no workout, yet) from the Eagles, has teed off on Commissioner Roger Goodell, accusing the Commissioner of lying about the health effects of concussions.

“The no it all Rog goodell lied to every player and told us concussions will not effect us in life that a LIE!” Shockey declares on Twitter.

The full extent of Shockey’s Twitter timeline suggest that he’s thinking about joining the concussion lawsuits, given that he says, “Science tells me I’ll be dead time in 54yrs old!! What would u do?“

Shockey, who has played for the Giants, Saints, and Panthers, also says, “It would be great to give the health study on NFL players on a commercial during the games!! just want the fans and congress to know! FACT.”

Of course, if Shockey decides to keep playing at a time when he fully appreciates and is concerned about the risks, it’ll be hard for him to do anything about it later.  But if no one gives him an opportunity to keep playing, there’s a chance he may do something about it sooner.

Eagles, Jeremy Shockey still have 'mutual' interest

ShockeyPanthers
According to the Philadelphia Daily News, there remains "mutual" interest between the Eagles and free agent Jeremy Shockey.

"Nothing is close to happening now," however, cautions the Daily News. The Eagles still haven't brought Shockey in for a physical, perhaps because they want to give youngsters Brett Brackett and Chase Ford a chance to make a mark early in camp.

Eagles work out Visanthe Shiancoe, hold off on Jeremy Shockey

ShockeyPanthers
The Philadelphia Eagles continue to shop for veteran tight end help but might delay a meeting with former Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey that was initially scheduled for Wednesday.

Shockey turns 32 in August and for the first time in 10 NFL seasons, caught fewer than 40 passes last season in Carolina, where he split time with Greg Olsen. Shockey would be a second option behind Brent Celek, who caught 62 passes for 811 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. Celek is signed through 2016.

The Eagles hosted Visanthe Shiancoe, 32, Tuesday morning and he went through a complete workout for coaches and scouts. He has more experience in the West Coast offense but wasn't re-signed by the Vikings in free agency. Minnesota is set with younger options John Carlson and Kyle Rudolph on the roster.

Panthers 'haven't ruled out' signing Jeremy Shockey

ShockeyPanthers
The Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers "haven't ruled out" re-signing free agent Jeremy Shockey.

Per beat writer Joseph Person, the Panthers want to see how Gary Barnidge looks in camp before making a final decision on Shockey. Barnidge missed all of 2011 with a broken ankle. The AP's Steve Reed reported in March the Panthers were "really high" on Barnidge's potential as a downfield threat before his injury. It probably doesn't hurt that he's making just $615,000.

Eagles Interested in Jeremy Shockey

ShockeyPanthers
Citing a league source, Tim McManus of the newly-formed Birds 24/7 Philadelphia Eagles blog reports that the team is “showing interest” in free agent tight end Jeremy Shockey.

The Eagles seem intent on adding a veteran tight end, seeing as they’re in pursuit of Visanthe Shiancoe, as well.

Like Shiancoe, Shockey is 32 years old and most likely nearing the end of the line in the NFL. He can still catch and block, however, and makes sense as a No. 2 tight end, backing up Brent Celek.

Working opposite Greg Olsen in Carolina last year, Shockey caught 37 passes for 455 yards and four touchdowns.

The Eagles plan on giving free agent TE Jeremy Shockey a physical "at some point."

As of now, Shockey isn't scheduled to work out for the Eagles. Shockey hasn't made so much as a visit since the beginning of free agency, but that could be due more to his monetary demands than a perceived erosion of skill, even though he is clearly not the player he once was.

Warren Sapp On Shockey ‘Haven’t Had A Problem With Him’

WarrenSapp
Seven time Pro Bowler and 2002 Super Bowl champion, Warren Sapp joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich to discuss his new show on YouTube, Jeremy Shockey and Jon Gruden.

Sapp is in a new show that features him as a judge. It’s a series for The NOC, a YouTube channel.

The guys went on to discuss a disagreement between Sapp and former New Orleans Saint tight end Jeremy Shockey. Sapp got some information from a source that Shockey was the guy in the Saints’ lockerroom the blew the whistle about the bounty system.

Sapp feels sorry for how he went about releasing the information, but believes in his source. Sapp told the guys that Shockey and him have talked and that he believes there is no bad blood between the two, but if there were he could deal with it.

“The two times I’ve seen him I haven’t had a problem with him, but if he does we can go out in the grass and get it over with,” Sapp joked.

They also discussed his former coach Jon Gruden and whether he is the guy we see on television and the Gruden Bus.
