Former Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey collapsed on the 24th of May. He was at a Las Vegas party and was carted off to a hospital. According to a report by the entertainment Web site TMZ, Shockey was found unconscious at around 2 p.m. at the Hard Rock Hotel and was carried out on a stretcher. It was due to dehydration and now Saints team spokesman says tight end Jeremy Shockey is doing fine.

Lots of Giants fans know Shockey as hard nose type of player. Who gave it all on every single play, for example getting his helmet ripped off from a Eagle player and still keeps going for more yards. Shockey has been in the Pro Bowl four times, most recently in 2006. Before playing for the Saints, Shockey was with the New York Giants. In eight seasons, Shockey has 421 receptions for 4,711 yards and 27 touchdowns.

Shockey's agent Drew Rosenhaus said on Tuesday that he is feeling 100 percent and is feeling great. The Saints will have a mandatory minicamp for veteran players beginning Monday. Jeremey Shockey is expected to attend some time next week.
