  • Giants' Sterling Shepard: Coming along in recovery

    Shepard started jogging again last week for the first time since suffering a torn Achilles in December, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.

    Shepard's recovery from the injury, which he suffered in Week 15 last year, seems to be on track as Giants general manager Joe Schoen previously indicated that he hoped the wideout would be back by August. With that in mind, Shepard mentioned to Anderson that there's no pressure when it comes to his exact return date and that he's been limited to taking mental reps and catching balls from the jugs machine while working at the Giants' facility this offseason. The 29-year-old, who finished fourth on the team in receiving yards during his injury-riddled 2021 campaign -- hauling in 36 catches for 366 yards and one touchdown over seven games -- has appeared in 29 total games across the past three seasons.

  • Giants' Sterling Shepard: Could return by August

    GM Joe Schoen noted Monday that he's hopeful Shepard (Achilles) will be back by August, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.

    Shepard, who tore his Achilles back on Dec. 19, has made good progress in his recovery, per Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger. That said, the wideout figures to be eased into the training camp/preseason mix by the Giants, with an eye toward giving him a shot to be available for Week 1 action. Prior to his injury, Shepard recorded 36 catches for 366 yards and a TD in seven games, and once he's up to speed, the 29-year-old will look to reestablish his role in a WR corps that also includes Kenny Golladay, Kadarius Toney (shoulder) and Darius Slayton.

  • Giants' Sterling Shepard: Agrees to restructured contract

    Shepard (Achilles) agreed to a restructured contract with the Giants on Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

    Shepard will remain with the Giants for a seventh consecutive year while likely taking a pay cut after sustaining a season-ending Achilles' injury in mid-December during the 2021 campaign. The wideout's recovery process is going smoothly so far, and there's optimism that he could be cleared to return by early summer. The 29-year-old, who hasn't played a full season in any of the last three years, hauled in 36 of 53 targets for 366 yards and a touchdown across seven games in 2021, all career-low marks.

  • Giants' Sterling Shepard: Pay cut being discussed

    The Giants have discussed the possibility of Shepard (Achilles) needing to take a pay cut this offseason, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

    Shepard is scheduled for a cap hit of roughly $12.5 million in the 2022 season, while coming off an injury-plagued campaign that ended with a torn left Achilles mid-December. However, his recovery is apparently progressing nicely, as he could be good to go by early summer, per Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com. Nor are injury concerns a new development for Shepard, who missed eight regular-season games from 2019-20. While the Giants do have incentive to keep Shepard in house, as he's proven to be one of Daniel Jones' most trusted targets when healthy, it's worth noting that the team can also get out of the final two years of his contract for just under $8 million in dead cap.
