Unfortunately this story came out tonight, too late to make the Wednesday Walk. We've talked in the past about the 2nd rounder the Giants got for Jeremy Shockey turning into a 1st rounder, but there seemed to be a few differences of opinion on just how that would happen. We can differ no more, this article seems to explain it:

If ex-Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma participates in 85 percent of the defensive snaps (he has started all 14 games) and if the Saints sign him to a contract extension, the Saints would have to send to the Jets the second-round pick currently earmarked for the Giants.

And the Giants then would get a first-rounder. For Shockey.
