Jeremy Shockey has a character witness in his corner for "Snitchgate," but it might not be the best character witness in the world: suspended New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton. Warren Sapp had earlier said on his Twitter account that Shockey, a former Saints tight end who played for the Carolina Panthers last season, was the one who blew the whistle to the NFL on the Saints' bounty program. Shockey immediately denied the accusation via his Twitter page, and just a little while ago, offered up more proof . It seems Shockey texted Payton to assure him he wasn't the finger-pointer, and Payton texted him back that he had complete faith in him. The messages (and Shockey is quite the potty mouth)

In the wake of the devastating penalties levied against the New Orleans Saints on Wednesday for carrying out a bounty program in which defensive players were rewarded for hurting opposing players and putting them out of games, one question arose: Who told the NFL about it? Former NFL defensive tackle Warren Sapp says he knows. Sapp took to Twitter on Wednesday and said it was former Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey. Shockey denied it was him, telling Yahoo Sports, "It's reckless, it's careless, it's hurtful to me and the great time I had with the Saints.

Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey is probably out for the season after injuring a knee in the New York Giants' 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Shockey will not need surgery, but recovery time is six to eight weeks, Coach Jim Fassel said Monday. An MRI exam showed a partial tear of Shockey's posterior cruciate ligament. "Jeremy has been a big part of our offense," Fassel said. "You can't just unplug a guy like that and say that it is not going to effect you or hurt you."

New York Giant rookie Jeremy Shockey was fined $10,000 for throwing a cup of ice into the stands and making an obscene gesture during a first-round playoff loss at San Francisco. The NFL docked the all-pro tight end $5,000 for each act, league spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday. Shockey, a rookie who also made the Pro Bowl, threw the cup over his shoulder in the first quarter while being heckled by fans after he complained about the officiating.

In a sloppy game played on an ugly, rainy day there was one shining performance -- that of New York Giants' rookie tight end Jeremy Shockey. Shockey caught 11 passes for 111 yards and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals, leading the Giants to a 19-17 victory over the Washington Redskins in a game delayed more than 10 minutes in the fourth quarter by the review of a play.

New York Giant tight end Jeremy Shockey, whose offensive quotes in three magazines have caused an uproar in the Big Apple, issued an apology in a written statement released by the team last weekend. In ESPN the Magazine, he said he would like to step on the face of Dallas owner Jerry Jones. In New York magazine, he was quoted as referring to Cowboy Coach Bill Parcells as a "homo." And he vividly described his sexual fantasies in Maxim magazine.

Ben Roethlisberger has been cleared by the NFL to return to the Pittsburgh Steelers beginning next week, although no decision has been made on the length of his suspension. The quarterback was suspended without pay for six games last month by Commissioner Roger Goodell after a 20-year-old college student accused him of sexual assault in Milledgeville, Ga. No charges were filed. Roethlisberger underwent a behavioral evaluation as part of the suspension, which could be reduced to four games by Goodell, who will review the case again before the regular season.

Jeremy Shockey was traded to the Saints for two draft picks Monday, giving New Orleans a disgruntled star tight end who watched from afar while injured as the New York Giants surged to the Super Bowl title. The Giants will get second- and fifth-round picks in the 2009 draft. The deal must be approved by the NFL and is contingent on Shockey's passing a physical.
