Rosenhaus: Shockey to attend camp

Saints tight end Jeremy Shockey, who was hospitalized for treatment of dehydration last weekend, is well enough to participate in New Orleans' upcoming minicamp, his agent said.

Shockey is "100 percent and feeling great," Drew Rosenhaus said Tuesday, according to the New Orleans Times Picayune. "He's doing fine. You guys [the media] will see him next week. If I have anything to add, I'll call you back."

The Saints will have a mandatory minicamp for veteran players beginning Monday.

Shockey was taken to a hospital after becoming dehydrated near a swimming pool while attending a party with several NFL players in Las Vegas, team spokesman Greg Bensel said.

The party, called "Rehab," apparently was at the Beach Club Pool at the Hard Rock Cafe Casino, another Saints official told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen. Celebrity gossip site TMZ.com first reported that paramedics wheeled Shockey out on a stretcher from the party after he was found unconscious Sunday afternoon.

Shockey made the Pro Bowl four times with the New York Giants but was traded to the Saints before last season. He caught 50 passes for career lows in yardage (483) and touchdowns (none) and missed five games with a sports hernia.
