Wide receiver Russell Shepard announced he's re-signing with the Giants.
Shepard shared the news in an Instagram post, writing "EXTREMELY happy to be back with the GANG!!!! #BigBLUE #ShepDAWGBack."
The deal is for one year, according to the New York Daily News.
In 10 games with the Giants last season, Shepard had 10 catches for 188 yards and two touchdowns. The 28-year-old's special-teams contributions likely played a role in the Giants bringing him back, but he'll provide depth as the Giants make plans at wide receiver in the wake of trading Odell Beckham Jr. to Cleveland.
One of Shepard's touchdown catches actually came from a pass by Beckham against the Bears on Dec. 2.
Shepard played his first four NFL seasons with Tampa Bay before signing with Carolina in 2017. Giants GM Dave Gettleman had signed Shepard when he was Panthers GM before Carolina let Gettleman go that summer.
