Former New York Giants Jeremy Shockey and Amani Toomer Engage in Twitter War

By Jeff Shull

The New York Giants have filled their tight end vacancy with Martellus Bennett, but former Giants Pro Bowl tight end Jeremy Shockey has expressed his desire to return to New York.

A desire that sparked a Twitter war between former teammate Amani Toomer.

It started with Toomer’s reaction to a Daily News report that Shockey wants to return despite the bridges he burned when leaving the organization.

“No!!Shockey’I will never play4 you again!’he yelled at jerry Reese in 08. Let him keep his word. Bad teammate, worse person.” Toomer tweeted.

Jeremy Shockey responded with multiple tweets.

It’s funny how the Ny media still try’s to make money off me! Can anyone find a quote from me on me wanting to play for the GAINTS?

Amani Toomer on Jeremy Shockey: Bad teammate, Haha. Well he was the lazy one that broke my leg!!

Shockey is referring to the injury in 2007 when Toomer rolled over his leg and broke it, ending Shockey’s season before the Giants made a Super Bowl run. Shockey was absent at the parade, and he blames Toomer for the leg break. It didn’t end there.

“yes remember when his ex divorced him and he urinated on a her cloths I guess he’s the good person.”

@AmaniAToomer Go get a bucket of rocks and start throwing them at your glass house”

Finally, after this barrage of immature tweets, Amani responded.

“Shockey,Thanks 4 proving my statement about being a bad person. Lieing about my EX.Low blow.Enough said.Have a nice day& good luck as a FA.”

It definitely got ugly between the two. Shockey does not seem to be able to let it go, which means he knows what Toomer says is true. The Giants want nothing to do with Shockey.

“Nothing but love in my mind.. I’m at peace can’t let the negative people bring me down! #growup

@AmaniAToomer call me jeremy only my friends call me by my last name! What do u have a book coming out pls keep my name out of your mouth”

“Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.”

It started with a tweet by Toomer, but he responded only once to Shockey’s nonsensical tweets. It appears Shockey needs to heed his own advice and grow the hell up.

He wonders why the Giants have zero interest? These tweets pretty much sum it up.
