Biography Timeline


After high school, Shockey briefly attended Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, where he wore #80, in the hopes of being recruited by the University of Arizona. While there, however, Arizona wasn’t interested and Shockey eventually earned a scholarship to and 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. The Hurricanes went 11–1 and Shockey received first team All-Big East honors from the league's coaches, The Sporting News, and College Football News.


In 2001, Shockey was an integral member of the national championship Miami team. Shockey led the team with 45 receptions and had 604 yards receiving and eight touchdowns (including bowl statistics). He was one of three finalists for the Mackey Award, and was named a first team All-American by CNNSI, and a second team All-American by the Associated Press, CBS Sportsline, and ABC Sports. Having reached the status of national champion and All-American, Shockey declared himself eligible for the NFL Draft following the 2001 season.


In 2002, Shockey said in a radio interview that he hoped there were no gay players in the NFL. "If I knew there was a gay guy on my college football team, I probably wouldn't, you know, stand for it," he told Howard Stern, adding, "I think, you know, they're going to be in the shower with us and stuff, so I don't think that's gonna work. That's not gonna work, you know?" He later told the New York Daily News, "I guess I do regret saying it. I didn't think anyone was going to make a big deal out of it. I'm not prejudiced against anybody's beliefs or what they do in their off time. I do regret saying something like that. Whatever I did to offend people, I apologize. I'm not prejudiced in any way."


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 $26.38 million through 2011. Shockey turned in another strong performance during the 2006 season, catching 66 passes for 623 yards and tying a career-high with seven touchdown receptions. For his efforts, Shockey was named to the Pro Bowl.


On December 16, 2007, in week 15 of the season, while playing the Washington Redskins, Shockey suffered a fractured fibula and damage to his ankle. He underwent surgery, and would be out for the rest of the 2007 season. Kevin Boss then took over Shockey's spot as the starting tight end.


On July 21, 2008, the Giants agreed to trade Shockey to the New Orleans Saints in exchange for second and fifth-round picks in the 2009 NFL Draft. He attempted to start the relationship with his new team on a good note, telling the Associated Press shortly after that trade, "The Saints have a lot of weapons, starting with Drew Brees, and I look forward to joining my teammates at training camp. This will be a fun year." In his first game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he had 6 receptions for 54 yards. After three games with the Saints, Shockey had a sports hernia and sat for 5 weeks. Shockey was a minor factor for the Saints during the 2008 NFL Season, in which he caught 50 passes for a career low 483 yards and a career low 0 touchdowns. In 2009, Shockey became an important offensive weapon for the Saints, catching 48 passes for 569 yards and averaging close to 12 yards per reception. Throughout the season, Shockey was again plagued with injuries. Despite an injured knee, Shockey caught a pass for a touchdown in the Saints' playoff victory over the Arizona Cardinals. In Super Bowl XLIV, Shockey caught the go-ahead touchdown pass from Drew Brees. Shockey got his second championship title as the Saints won their first Super Bowl in franchise history by defeating the Indianapolis Colts 31–17.


On February 22, 2011, Shockey was released by the Saints.


In January 2013, Shockey filed for divorce after being married eight months to Daniela Cortazar-Shockey in Miami claiming the marriage was "irretrievably broken."

Family Life

Grew up in Oklahoma with his parents, Jimmy and Lucinda, and his brother James.
