Shockey staying very visible on Saints' sideline

NEW ORLEANS -- There's a very interesting scene on the New Orleans sideline.

Tight end Jeremy Shockey, who stayed away from the Giants during last season's Super Bowl, isn't steering clear of the Saints while he's recovering from hernia surgery. In fact, Shockey's keeping a very visible presence.

Shockey, in street clothes, has been bouncing around all game. He's been standing near coach Sean Payton most of the game and often has been the first to shake the hands of teammates as they come off the field.
