Viruses don't go away, they just jump from host to host, affecting that party with whatever it is they carry. Meet Jeremy Shockey, the human form who has recently found home in New Orleans, where he already is making everyone he's around sick on contact.
The top sports headlines of the day
According to PFT, Shockey is already hated by some of his teammates, which was apparent yesterday when Drew Brees and Shockey got in a little verbal lashing on the sidelines after Shockey couldn't close his hands fast enough around the pigskin.
As one source told us, Shockey already is "hated" by more than a few members of the organization.
The reasons relate to both on-field and off-field conduct. "Things in London, things in practice, things in games," the source said.
I have no clue why he'd already be getting the cold shoulder by some of his buddies. The Saints are only 4-5 and, in the absence of a lot of their offensive playmakers this season, with both Marques Colston and Reggie Bush missing time with injuries, it's not like they could really expect Shockey to step up and make plays.
