1. WR Sterling Shepard

Whether it be because he simply won't be re-signed, or he's retiring, we know for a fact that this was Sterling Shepard's last game with the NY Giants. Fortunately for him, Brian Daboll and the entire team did him a service as not only did he get a special introduction, but Shep was finally given some time on the field and made some Giants history.

After finally receiving some meaningful snaps, Shepard managed to move to fifth on the Giants' all-time reception leaders list. Considering all of the horrible injuries he's sustained in his shortened career, this is incredibly impressive and goes to show how much Shepard means to the organization.

Speaking personally, Shepard is a player who will be missed greatly. He is the embodiment of what it means to be a New York Giant. Regardless of quarterback, record, or injury, it didn't matter, Shepard showed up, worked his tail off and never complained about the things around him. He was truly built for the New York spotlight and if not for injuries, he could have had a much more memorable career.

For the die-hard Giants fans such as myself, we'll always remember Shepard and what he meant to the team. We've already seen players like Barkley talk about how much they'll miss Shep and it's easy to see why. What he brought both on the field and off will be nearly impossible to replace and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.
