Add the Seattle Seahawks to the clubs interested in acquiring New York Giants' tight end Jeremy Shockey. A league source on Saturday acknowledged that Shockey is on the block, with New Orleans and the Seahawks the two most interested. According to the source, Seahawks' coach Mike Holmgren is enamored with Shockey and would like to have him for his last year with the Seahawks. It is uncertain if the Saints have made an offer for the veteran tight end. New Orleans also wants Shockey, the source said, but is unwilling to meet the Giants' demands. It is unclear what those are, though one source said it could be a first-round draft pick. New Orleans reportedly was rebuffed trying to acquire Shockey for a second.
