Terry McCormick is reporting that the Titans have talked to agent Drew Rosenhaus about Jeremy Shockey. I will go on record right now as saying that I will be shocked if the Titans were to sign Shockey, but as McCormick's article mentions, Titans offensive coordinator Chris Palmer has familiarity with Shockey from 2007 when they were both with the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants. You will remember that Shockey was injured late in that season and did not play in the Super Bowl.

Shockey had some really good seasons early in his career with the Giants, but he hasn't had more than 50 catches in a season since 2007. He has battled numerous injury issues the last few years.

McCormick mentions that the Titans have a need at tight end with the imminent departure of Bo Scaife. I am not so sure that is true considering you have Jared Cook on the roster who has a ton of upside and Craig Stevens who is a good blocker. They probably would want to carry three tight ends, but I don't want Shockey here taking playing time from Cook who has a lot more upside at this point.

[UPDATE]- McCormick is now backing off this report saying that the interest is more on Shockey's end.
