The report that tight end Jeremy Shockey wanted to return to the New York Giants has stirred up quite a storm. Mere hours after it hit the tabloids, former Big Blue wide receiver and teammate of Shockey, Amani Toomer, took to Twitter in an effort to speak out against the mere idea of his return to the Big Apple.
"No Shockey! 'I will never play for you again!' he yelled at Jerry Reese in 08. Let him keep his word. Bad teammate, worse person."
These comments didn't sit well with Shockey, who immediately retaliated.
"Bad teammate. Haha. Well, he was the lazy one that broke my leg!" Shockey tweeted. "Remember when his ex divorced him and he urinated on a her cloths? I guess he's the good person."
Shockey continued: "Go get a bucket of rocks and start throwing them at your glass house."
Uncharacteristic of Toomer to speak out so bluntly, this exchange is right up Shockey's alley. Moreover, it shows that he has not, after all, matured and remains as bitter towards the Giants and his former teammates as ever. Oh, and let's not leave the media out of the equation:
"It's funny how the NY media still tries to make money off me! Can anyone find a quote from me on me wanting to play for the GIANTS?"
So, what does it all mean? It means that Shockey has absolutely no chance of returning to the Giants now or ever again.
"My tweet is not going anywhere. I stand by what I say," Toomer concluded. "Shockey, thanks for proving my statement about you being a bad person. Enough said. Have a nice day, buddy."
