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.

I love Shockey, but he is just too much sometimes. Boss proved to help Eli Manning. He is a better blocker and does not complain when he doesn't get passed to. Also, he's a decent receiver. Plus, Shockey has 1st round pick value plus a string of second tier players. Maybe a trade to the Saints for a 1st round pick, Devery Henderson or Josh Bullocks, and maybe a Scott Fujita, Randall Gay, or Roman Harper. It benefits both teams a lot. Also, I might try to get an array of picks. Maybe a 2nd rounder this year, a 1st next year, and 4th and 7th of 2010. Both options benefit both sides.

If I were the Giants I'd look to trade Shockey somewhere. He's overrated as a Tight End and he brings a lot of baggage with his attitude and unnecessary penalties. Kevin Boss was great down the stretch for the G-men, he can fill in fine. They played their best football without Jeremy Shockey on the field.

That would be a great impact on the Seahawks.
