Uncertainty surrounding Shepard has subsequently heightened the importance of veteran free agent Golden Tate, who also appears a frontrunner to head up the receiver corps.

With proven yards after contact and valuable flexibility, he may well become one of the Giants’ most prominent pass-catchers in 2019.

The presence of two receivers that thrive in the slot in Shepard and Tate also creates opportunity for variation to the pair’s contributions, particularly when it comes to the latter. While being a fascinating battle for targets in itself, it is beneath the aforementioned duo where the questions lie.

As it stands, however, Tate will be unavailable for the Giants’ opener having been suspended for four games after violating the NFL’s Performance Enhancing Substance Policy.

He is now waiting to find out the outcome of his appeal.

Having been a leading contender to occupy the third receiver position, Coleman saw his hopes of a breakout year dashed by a season-ending ACL tear suffered in practice on Thursday.

The 25-year-old had headed into camp as one of the Giants’ dark horses to assert himself as a key commodity on Pat Shurmur’s offense.

Still striving to hit the heights set of him upon his introduction to the league, Coleman showed glimpses last season of what a useful weapon he could develop into.

It’s for his potential to finally find its feet in the NFL that your heart breaks for the former Cleveland Brown.
