New York Giants News And Notes: Jeremy Shockey, Martellus Bennett, David Carr

Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are a few notes for you this morning.

Former NY Giants TE Jeremy Shockey would like Big Blue encore even after problems he caused - NY Daily News
Jeremy Shockey, who forced his way out of New York four years ago, needs a job and has let the Giants know he would like to return, the Daily News has learned.

Valentine's View: Wait, wait, wait ... I had to stop laughing first. Shockey thinks the Giants would want anything to do with him? What planet does he live on? Shockey-tron? Zero chance of Shockey back to the Giant -- even before Martellus Bennett signed on Wednesday.

By the way, I love the Bennett move by the Giants. It is probably true that Bennett has not become the player he was forecast to be, but he has been playing behind Jason Witten in Dallas. The Giants think Bennett can be a weapon in the passing attack, and the fact that GM Jerry Reese got him on a one-year deal means the Giants should get a highly-motivated player.

By the way, even if Bennett disappoints as a receiver, Pro Football Focus points out that the 6-foot-6, 265-pounder is one of the best run-blocking tight ends in the league. His 2011 PFF run-blocking grade of +8.2 was, in fact, best in the NFL among tight ends. That will have to be a plus for the Giants' running game.

NFC East Wednesday: How was your day? - NFC East Blog - ESPN

"A success." They flew former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett in late Tuesday night, and they signed him Wednesday to a one-year, $2.5 million contract. They obviously see something they like in Bennett and believe that the coaching staff and quarterback Eli Manning can bring the best out of him, and they targeted and got him. They also got him on a very low-risk deal that will allow them to go in a different direction if he disappoints and their injured tight ends are healthy enough to return at the end of the season. Cowboys fans seem sure he will disappoint, and he very well may. But he's only 25 and he's got a ton of physical ability, so the Giants think maybe they're getting a guy right before he really takes off.
