Jeremy Shockey says he wants to die while having sex

Jeremy-Shockey-girlfriendJeremy Shockey was out of football last year, and people who are only 32 years old and not working can get pretty bored. That could help explain one of the former New York Giants tight end’s recent tweets, or it could be that he’s just an incredibly weird dude.

We pretty much have to assume that somebody got a little action last night. We have seen NFL players offer way too much information on Twitter in the past when it comes to tweeting about perverted stuff, but Shockey took it to another level early Tuesday morning. You know how most people say they would like to die in their sleep? Shockey has his own plan for how he wants to go.

I feel bad for the girl he ends up dead on top of. Shockey also tweeted on of those “your dirty mind” pictures to go along with his thought, which you can see by clicking his Instagram link.

Are we surprised? Not really. This is the same Shockey who once tweeted this picture of his girlfriend and a bottle of Jack Daniels and said they are his two favorite things in the world. Tuesday morning’s tweet was just another example of a freaky dude being a freaky dude.

Jeremy Shockey rips Roger Goodell in Twitter rant about health of NFL players

As the issue of concussions and head injuries in the NFL becomes more prevalent, so too do the discussions about it on Twitter. On Sunday night, Jeremy Shockey decided to get in on the act by preaching about the negative effects playing football has on the health of players.

He is not the first player to do this and won’t be the last, but what was particularly interesting about Shockey’s rant was the way he ripped Roger Goodell and basically accused him of lying to players for the benefit of the game. Here are a few of the tweets.

Warren Sapp says he apologized to Jeremy Shockey

After publicizing his baseless claims that Jeremy Shockey was the snitch in the Saints bounty scandal and also somehow keeping his job with NFL Network, Warren Sapp has apologized to the man he threw under the bus. Or so he says.

Sapp was a guest on Toucher and Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston recently and said that he apologized to Shockey when the two ran into each other not long after the whole ordeal involving them began. While Sapp still stands by his “reporting,” he said he was sorry for the way he handled it.

“I saw Jeremy about a week after it all went down at a Heat game … and I told him, I said, ‘I apologize for putting it on the street level and making it derogatory towards you,’” Sapp said (via Sports Radio Interviews). “The information that was passed to me, I stand by my source, but I hate that I put it on a level, that wasn’t the way it should be. … That’s what I apologized for, because I put it on a way lower level than it should’ve been. It was something serious that never shoulda went on and stuff like that. So that’s the problem I have with myself and what I said to him.”

Sapp also added that he believes he and Shockey are on proper terms now.

“The two times I’ve seen him I haven’t had a problem with him, but if he does we can go out in the grass and get it over with,” Sapp said. “I don’t have a problem with getting my knuckles a little scarred up.”

Now, we still have yet to hear from Shockey if Sapp’s attempted apology was substantial enough for him. If it’s not, we should buy air time for this grass fight Sapp appears eager for.

Jeremy Shockey says he won $10k betting on Thunder in Game 3

Las Vegas oddsmakers had a lot of faith in the Oklahoma City Thunder for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday, and apparently so did Jeremy Shockey. The tight end claimed that he won $10k betting on the Thunder:

Talk is cheap, so folks told him to tweet a picture of his betting ticket Floyd Mayweather Jr.-style otherwise they didn’t want to hear it. Shockey failed to produce, probably because he’s on vacation after recently marrying his wife.

Whether you believe him is up to you, but we know people were surprised to see the Thunder favored by 4.5 points despite losing the first two games of the series to the Spurs which had won 20 straight games. While I thought giving 4.5 points was hefty, I knew the series wasn’t over after two games the way so many others felt. Things change in a big way when series switch to the other team’s home court.

Ron Rivera calls Jeremy Shockey a ‘tremendous person,’ says he’s not snitch type

There are plenty of people across the NFL who do not care for Jeremy Shockey. He has a reputation for being a loud mouth and has been accused of being a lousy teammate. That doesn’t mean it was right when Warren Sapp accused him of being the person who ratted out the Saints for running a bounty program. Sapp had nothing to support his claim, which is why the NFL Network wound up reprimanding him for his tweet. On Wednesday, Shockey’s former coach Ron Rivera gave the tight end a strong endorsement.

“If you know Jeremy Shockey, you know that’s not Jeremy Shockey,” Rivera said at the NFL owners meetings according to the Charlotte Observer. “I know there was an insinuation that he had been the guy. But that’s not Jeremy’s makeup. That’s not who Jeremy Shockey is.

“Jeremy Shockey’s a guy that if there was something going on, that’s their business. I would be surprised, I really would. It wouldn’t hurt him in my eyes either way because, first of all, I think Jeremy Shockey’s a tremendous person. I think he’s also a very good football person – a football personality who understands this game.”

Sounds like somebody would welcome Shockey back with the Panthers next season. Rivera’s opinion of Shockey is the complete opposite of Amani Toomer’s, who recently called him a bad person and worse teammate. As for whether or not Sapp’s accusation will affect Shockey’s ability to find work, I doubt it. The general consensus seems to be that Warren was out of line, and any character concerns teams might have about Shockey were likely there to before he was accused of being a snitch.

Jeremy Shockey tweets screen shot of a text conversation with Sean Payton to prove their relationship is fine

After word surfaced that Sean Payton had been suspended for a full year as part of the punishment for the Saints bounty program, Warren Sapp accused Jeremy Shockey of being the “snitch.” Sapp sent out a tweet despite the fact that he had absolutely no evidence for what he was saying, and Shockey was understandably furious over it. Jeremy blasted Warren for the tweet and we told you exactly how we feel about Sapp for doing something that irresponsible. On Thursday, Shockey offered further proof that his relationship with Payton is fine when he tweeted a screen shot of a text conversation between him and his former coach:

Jeremy Shockey blasts Warren Sapp over damaging snitch allegation

Warren Sapp irresponsibly tweeted Wednesday that Jeremy Shockey was the “snitch” who told the NFL investigators about the Saints bounty system. Shockey, who played for the Saints two of the three years they had bounties, denied Sapp’s accusation, but the allegation spread across the internet and ended up on many major sports websites. It was even discussed on NFL Network which is owned by the league. There is a serious conflict because the league promised to protect anyone who reports wrongdoing in the NFL. Now the only thing Shockey can do is defend his reputation.

Shockey has said he has a strong relationship with Saints coach Sean Payton and that he wouldn’t rat him out. Shockey even suggested he and Sapp take a lie detector test and show it on TV. But his most powerful words came when he blasted Warren Sapp.

“Sapp can say what he wants about me, but if he really says that he’ll put his life on the line for his source, we’ll see,” he told Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports. “I’ve never been a guy who failed multiple drug tests. I’ve never been divorced. I don’t have four kids by four different women. I don’t lie. This attacks my character and it’s not fair.”

Wow, talk about a burn. It’s nice Shockey brought all that up about Sapp because many people don’t realize what a clown he is. We’ve tried to point it out before and we’ll do it again.

Sapp’s claim about Shockey is irreversible. Once the word gets out that Shockey is the snitch — which is exactly what Sapp did — that’s all most people will hear. They won’t know about Shockey’s denial (or they’ll dismiss it). They won’t do the research and realize that Shockey was upset when he first heard about the allegation several weeks ago. They dismiss the reports from Mike Freeman of CBS and Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk who both say Shockey was not the snitch. Nope, most people from now on will think Jeremy Shockey is the reason the Saints got into so much trouble, even if it’s not true, all because of Sapp.

Sapp’s disgustingly irresponsible tweet is grounds for firing. Anyone with Sapp’s clout (or less for that matter) should never throw out a name unless they are 100% certain about their report and have evidence to prove it when it comes to such a sensitive subject. You especially don’t do that when you’re an employee of a league looking to clean up the game, not discourage people from ever stepping forward again. This was a colossal mistake by Sapp on several levels. The only proper response is for him to apologize for saddling Shockey with a snitch label for life and to be fired for his recklessness.

UPDATE: Shockey has tweeted a screen shot of a text conversation between him and Sean Payton which seemingly proves that there are no hard feelings.
