Rotoworld: Shockey for 1st Round Only (1 Viewer)

The Giants are unlikely to trade Jeremy Shockey for anything less than a first-round pick, according to the Westchester Journal News.
The Saints reportedly made an offer for Shockey, but were turned down. The Giants still think Shockey, 27, is one of the best all-around tight ends and that his blocking is tops in the league. Kevin Boss is still a developing project.

from Rotoworld. http://www.rotoworld.com/content/clubhouse_relatednews.aspx?sport=NFL&majteam=NO

So is it possible that we somehow trade around to get two first round picks? As I've said before this is the first off-season I've paid attention to. I don't see us, nor should we, give away our first round pick right now for him. Although, is it possible we make some trades to get another, later first round pick to trade them. I hope the guys can some how find a way to work this out without killing our draft.

Shockey is one of the best all-around TE's in the league, but there would be no way I would give up a 1st, or even a 2nd round pick for the guy. If I were the giants I'd stand tall on that demand also, if any team is mentally challenged enough to offer up a 1st for him, then so be it.

They'll change they minds Shockey will soon come out and say he want to be traded... He's going to feel not wanted since the Giants are shopping him.

Exactly. It's never going to happen. If we were to trade a first for this broke-leg pecker-wood it would be the dumbest idea since hydrogen-filled blimps.

Wait until draft day... McFadden will fall to #10... the Cowboys will come calling... take both of their 1st rounders... take a CB with Dallas' first 1st rounder... then trade the other to NY for Shockey.... take a DT in round 2... call it an offseason.
