This is the Sterling Shepard that NY Giants fans love to see. While the images of Shepard being carted off the field at MetLife last fall remain fresh for some, let a new memory take over your brain: and it's a good one.

Despite Shepard still working his way back from his serious knee injury, that doesn't mean he's not looking like a baller in East Rutherford this week at minicamp. Shepard was showcasing his stuff in the best way possible on Wednesday. Let this video get you excited for what's to come from him moving foward:

That route from Shepard was a thing of beauty and his sure hands are also a great thing to see. All in all, you've got to smile seeing Shepard catching the ball for the Giants over in Jersey. After all he's been through, how could you not want to see him happy these days?

Shepard is back on a one-year deal with the G-Men and the expectation is that it will be his last campaign with the squad. Over the years, through the ups and downs, Shep has meant so much to this organization.

He's been through some lean years with Big Blue and even though he wasn't able to play with his teammates for the majority of the '22 campaign, he was still by their side every step of the way to shower them with love and support. The clips of him dancing in the locker room after a Giants win were incredible.

Now come the '23 regular season, Shepard will be done watching from the sidelines, as he's looking to make an impact catching the ball from Daniel Jones. Shepard said he's on track to play Week 1 vs. the Cowboys. This new highlight from minicamp only has fans even more excited to see him take the field against Dallas.
