It's been a little more than two weeks since Saints' tight end Jeremy Shockey's alcohol-assisted dehydration issues resulted in him getting carted away by paramedics from Rehab, the notorious Vegas day-after-hangover hangout. He's finally talking about it.
Sort of. Shockey won't go into the specifics about what vast array of elixirs his 250-lb. body ingested over his weekend in Vegas that left him woozy, disoriented and practically unconscious on that fateful Sunday afternoon by the implant-infested pools of Rehab, but he did hint at it being excessive:
If you're halfway intelligent you can read what everybody wrote," said Shockey, who was limited last season due to a sports hernia and didn't score a touchdown during his first season in New Orleans. "You know what they say, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. That's in the past. I'm looking forward to the future."
Shockey hasn't done much in New Orleans since he arrived last year from the Giants. He had a sports hernia that hampered him most of last season and didn't score any touchdowns. Many of his teammates were irked by his sucky play and suckier attitude, especially quarterback Drew Brees. Shockey did finally report to voluntary mini-camp with the rest of the Saints family this week.
