Jeremy Shockey was nowhere to be found yesterday at Giants Stadium. Then again, it's April and Shockey doesn't usually arrive in East Rutherford until late May.

But with rumors swirling for the past three months about a possible Shockey trade -- perhaps to the Saints -- the injured tight end's absence didn't do much to silence rumblings of a divide between himself and his teammates.

"When I talk to him, I say I'm excited about this season," said Manning, who has spoken with Shockey on a regular basis this offseason. "I'm excited about what we can become as a team, as our connection between Jeremy and I. I don't think we've reached our potential in our connection and in the tandem we can become. That's what I'm excited about because I see room for improvement in all areas." Full Story – Star-Ledger
