Shockey holdout will be a few days

First round draft pick Jeremy Shockey, currently penciled in as the starting TE, does not have a contract and has not yet practiced with the team.

The absence of first round draft pick Jeremy Shockey at training camp is no fault of the his.

The Giant Insiders' Ken Palmer spoke with head coach Jim Fassel, who said it would be a few more days before a final contract would be worked out.

There is a general understanding thoughout the league that contracts of players must be in line with one another. That is a player selected 10th in the draft, generally receives a more lucrative contract that one selected 13th or 14th.

Part of the problem is that some of the first round players surrounding Shockey have not yet been signed, therefore making it more difficult to nail down his numbers.
