4-year, $41 million extensionGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsMike Garafolo of the
NFL Network is reporting that the New York Giants will be signing wide receiver
Sterling Shepard to a 4-year, $41 million contract extension.Adam Schefter of
ESPN quickly confirmed the report, adding that Shepard will receive $21.3
million in guaranteed money.Not only does this move secure the Giants’ best
receiver for the foreseeable future, it does so before he can get to free
agency.Shepard would have been one of the best wide receivers to hit free agency
after the 2019 season, likely second only to the New Orleans Saints Michael
Thomas, and he likely would have commanded more money than he is making here.
The move to sign Shepard before his rookie contract expires is a rarity for the
Giants Youth Lorenzo Carter Jerseys , who seldom extend players early, and have routinely let second round picks leave via free agency. Shepard will be the
Giants new number one receiver following the trade of Odell Beckham Jr. and
their move to lock him up before he is able to play in that role — and then hit
free agency — could be seen as a vote of confidence for the young receiver.

Training Camp 2019Giants practice report, 8/12: Ryan Connelly, Daniel Jones,
Darius Slayton, moreNew,54commentsHere’s what happened at training camp on
Monday EDTEAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants breathed a sigh of relief
on Monday when tests on rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker revealed only a sprain
to his left knee. Coach Pat Shurmur said he will be “day-to-day.” Let’s look at
what else happened on Monday, the second-to-last public practice for the
Giants.Did not practiceOT George Asafo Adjei (concussion)CB DeAndre Baker
(knee)CB Sam Beal (hamstring/groin)LB Alec Ogletree (calf)Ryan Connelly keeps
impressingConnelly Lorenzo Carter Jerseys Stitched , a rookie linebacker taking first-team reps with Ogletree out, flashed into the backfield to make what would have been tackles
for loss on running plays. Connelly, a fifth-round pick, is pushing for playing
time.“He’s shown us that he belongs on the field,” Shurmur said. “He’s like any
young player. When somebody goes down ahead of you, you get in there and take
advantage of the reps you have.”Darius Slayton back to workRookie wide receiver
Darius Slayton is back to work after missing the first couple of weeks with a
hamstring injury suffered during a rookies only practice the day before veteran
players reported for camp.Slayton returned punts on Monday and took a handful of
reps with the offense, including one with the first team on which he caught a
quick screen from Eli Manning. Can Slayton, selected in the fifth round, make up
for lost time and be an impact player at the beginning of the season? Shurmur
said he “absolutely” can.“He’s made good progress. He’s been out there the last
couple of days Youth B.J. Hill Jerseys , which is good,” Shurmur said. “He’s got plenty of time, in my mind.”Daniel Jones on fire in the red zone Jones’ best work of the day
came when he completed three straight touchdown passes in a red zone drill. The
best throw came to slot receiver T.J. Jones off a rub route. Jones squeezed the
ball into the left corner and Jones made an excellent catch with Julian Love in
coverage.Jones’ other touchdown passes came to Russell Shepard and Garrett
Dickerson.Golden Tate wait drags on The NFL still has not issued a ruling on
Tate’s appeal of his four-game suspension for PED use. A decision was originally
expected last Friday.“We’re waiting, just like the rest of the world is,”
Shurmur said. “Originally it was reported that it was three days (for a decision
from the time the appeal is heard). It’s not three days, obviously. I think it
can take as long as it needs to.”Oh, ShepWide receiver Sterling Shepard
continues to take 11-on-11 reps with a yellow, non-contact jersey on. And he
continues to do things that a guy with a fractured left thumb probably wouldn’t
normally be advised to do.Shepard caught a couple of passes from Eli Manning —
with both hands. He did, though B.J. Hill Jerseys Stitched , smartly decide not to compete for a ball down the right sideline that appeared to be underthrown by Manning and was nearly picked off by
Grant Haley.Shepard also went to the ground on an incomplete pass down the left
sideline, appearing to brace his fall with only his right, healthy, hand.Will
Saquon play in preseason?Saquon Barkley didn’t play against the New York Jets?
Shurmur wouldn’t reveal whether or not Barkley would play at all in the
preseason.“He’s getting a heckuva lot of reps here in practice,” Shurmur said.
“I have a plan moving forward and I’ll let it reveal itself.”Remaining Training
