The Giants may no longer have Odell Beckham Jr., but Sterling Shepard is locked up for the foreseeable future.
The Giants and Shepard officially agreed to a four-year extension on Friday and the 25-year-old wide receiver is ready to step in as a leader in the wide receiver room.
"I'm ready," he told the team website. "With Odell going down the last two season [with injuries], that time definitely helped me get a grasp of what being a leader is all about, and being that lead guy in the room. I think it prepared me for this moment. I was pretty vocal anyway. I'm a pretty vocal guy. That will be no problem."
