Say what you want about your opinion on the Giants trading away star WR Odell Beckham Jr. His former teammates miss him. 

"Just his presence," Sterling Shepard told The Post's Paul Schwartz, adding that there has been an adjustment period to get used to him not in the locker room. "He's a great guy, he's loved around this facility. Just his presence, I guess."

Beckham has always been one of a kind since entering the league, and it showed in his awe-inspiring play that was matched with an exuberant personality as well. Whether it was making his signature one-handed grabs like it was just another day on the gridiron, or dancing in around practice with players like Shepard and Saquon Barkley, Beckham was always keeping things light and fun.

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.
