Times Picayune: Saints TE Jermey Shockey missed two regular-season
games and the playoffs of the 2007 season with a broken leg. This
season, he missed 4 games with a groin problem, which resulted in
sports hernia surgery, and an ankle sprain and had 50 catches for
483 yards and no TDs, both career lows. Payton said he thought
Shockey could get back to the production he had during his rookie
season, in 2002, when Payton was the Giants' OC, when Shockey had
74 catches for 894 yards and 2 TDs. And he said Monday that he
will participate in the Saints' offseason workout program. "I'm
going to do a lot of work with Drew (Brees)," Shockey said. "I'm
going to be here working with these guys. I haven't done that in
five or six years, and I'm not saying that I didn't make the right
decision in the past. Just here, I think it would benefit myself
and the team a lot more than it would if I was playing, doing the
one up in New York. "So I'm going to still work out in Miami,
that's the normal plan, but really show my face and come around
here a lot more than I've ever done in my whole career."
