One ex-New York Giant believes Jeremy Shockey should remain just that – a former member of Big Blue.
It was reported this morning that Shockey, a free agent, has made it known he would be open to returning to the Giants, a team he left while seemingly burning most bridges on his way out of town four years ago.
Keep it that way says Amani Toomer, the former Giants wide receiver and teammate of Shockey.
“No!!Shockey"I will never play4 you again!"he yelled at jerry Reese in 08. Let him keep his word. Bad teammate, worse person,” Toomer wrote on his Twitter account this morning.
Those are some strong words right there.
For his part, Shockey seems to be denying the link to the Giants.
“It's funny how the Ny media still try's to make money off me! Can anyone find a quote from me on me wanting to play for the GAINTS?” Shockey wrote on his Twitter account.
Let the fun continue.
