Russell Shepard signed a 1-year deal with the Giants. He joins a crowded group that includes Cody Latimer and Roger Lewis for playing time when they go three wide receivers. Shepard had 17 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown in his only season after being signed to a three-year, $10 million deal by Dave Gettleman in Carolina. Shepard spent the first four years of his career in Tampa. He also happens to be friend with Odell Beckham Jr. from their time together at LSU. I remember the two embracing and having a long talk before the Bucs played the Giants few years back.
