Once the Giants decided to move on from Golden Tate, it got me excited for Shepard, who was slated to move into the slot, an area he had a lot of success in earlier in his career. When the Giants signed Kenny Golladay in free agency, it surely lowered the target ceiling for Shepard, but again, he was going to be the starting slot receiver. After that, they went and drafted Kadarius Toney in the first round, a receiver who's essentially slot-only. Will he start over Shepard right away? Will they move Shepard opposite Golladay and send Darius Slayton to the bench? We don't know those answers right now, but there's certainly less appeal with Shepard now that all these new faces are around.
