Former Saints Tight End Jeremy Shockey is now with Carolina and faced his former teammates last Sunday. He trash talked them during the game and didn’t shake anyone’s hand afterwards, which is poor form since Saints players and coaches have said nothing but nice things about him.
Shockey’s tackiness inspired the normally mild-mannered voice of the Saints, Jim Henderson, to lambaste him:
“I never liked Jeremy Shockey, I didn’t like him as a Giant. I didn’t like him as a Saint. I didn’t think he fit in with this team in the locker room. And the Saints to their credit said all the right things about him. You know, ‘He was a great teammate. He was a mentor toJimmy Graham.’ I think that’s bull. I think deep down inside, I think they thought he was a jerk, too.”
