Shockey demanded a trade from the Giants following the team’s 2007 Super Bowl victory. At the time, he was reportedly upset that he was being used more as a blocker than a receiving tight end. He is now a free-agent. Toomer played for the Giants his entire career. In 13 seasons he totaled 668 receptions and 54 touchdowns.
