Wide Receiver Sterling Shepard

Q: We talked over the week about this potentially being your last game. So, from the time you got introduced to the time the game was over, the crowd was giving you an ovation, what kind of emotions were you feeling around today?

A: Really just trying to take it all in. Like I told you guys earlier in the week, I knew that this was probably going to be my last time being in this jersey. I just wanted to take it all in with my brothers and enjoy every moment of it, and that's exactly what I did.

Q: You had said that you wanted to get into the top five of the New York Giants receiving category. You did pass former New York Giants TE Jeremy Shockey in getting to that fifth spot. How much did it mean to you?

A: Yeah, it meant a lot. I grew up watching that guy and it was a special deal being able to get it. It wasn't easy but my career hasn't been easy. So, I didn't expect it to be any other way, but it was a great feeling.

Q: (some have) said that you epitomize what it means to be a Giant. What does that mean to you?

A: It means so much, because that is the reason why I play this game, for those guys. That's what ex-players will always come back AND tell you. They'll tell you that they miss the guys and being around them and the camaraderie, and for guys to be able to compliment me that way is something, that's what I strive for. It means a lot to me.

Q: What does it mean the last couple years, coming back from injuries, to make it back onto this roster? And of course, New York Giants Head Coach Brian Daboll and his staff really showed you a lot of love over these last couple of seasons.

A: Yeah, I'm just very appreciative of the opportunities that they gave me, because they didn't really have to do that. They believed in me, and I tried to put my best foot forward every day trying to fight back from those injuries and thank God I was able to do that. Thank God that we have the coaching staff that we have and the ownership that we have. I'm very appreciative of those guys.
