Shockey signed a five-year contract extension with the Giants on October 12, 2005, making him the highest paid tight end in professional football.
The contract had Shockey earning .38 million through 2011.
He was drafted by the New York Giants 14th overall in the 2002 NFL Draft.

First it was reported that she is dating Carolina Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey (although he denied it via Twitter and then linked to his actual girlfriend) and now it seems her ex-fiance, and the very most pathetic contestant in Bachelor history, Brad Womack just won’t leave her alone!
If you can believe this, it appears The Bachelorette has actually made another “til death do us part” match!
Having reached the status of national champion and All-American, Shockey declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft following the 2001 season.
Shockey was interviewed about his time at the University of Miami for the documentary The U, which premiered December 12, 2009 on ESPN. Shockey was selected 14th in the first round of the 2002 NFL Draft by the New York Giants.
Shockey attended the University of Miami, where he was part of the school's long tradition of star tight ends.
As a Hurricane, Shockey first rose to national attention as a sophomore in Miami's 2000 game versus rival Florida State, catching what proved to be the game-winning touchdown pass with :46 remaining in the fourth quarter as # 7 Miami defeated the then-top ranked Seminoles, 27–24.
“They were set up on a blind date,” a friend tells US Weekly of Emily, 25, and Jeremy, 31.
