The Giants have signed free agent wide receiver Russell Shepard, the team announced Tuesday.
Shepard had posted Monday on Instagram that he was joining New York’s roster.
Shepard signed a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the Panthers in March 2017. He registered 17 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown last season but asked for his release from Carolina earlier this month after the team reportedly requested he take a pay cut.
“I was locked out of my house after a late-night movie,” Heinicke told reporters. “I came back and there’s no one home, and I’m trying to nudge the door a little. It was one of those double doors. I thought it just needed a little nudge. Me and my buddy were getting it going a little, but when I put my foot to the door, my foot kind of slipped and it went through a window. It was just kind of a freak accident.”
The freak accident reportedly resulted in a severed tendon. He was expected to miss up to three months.
Reynolds was drafted in the sixth round by the Ravens in 2016 and later signed to the practice squad. He was on the active roster for just one game.
Later, he was released and picked up by the Redskins, but he became an unrestricted free agent again in Sept. 2017.
The 23-year-old may have landed in the perfect spot in Seattle as the Seahawks traded one of their top pass catchers in Jimmy Graham during the offseason to the Packers.
Allow me to explain. First, the head count. As the conference finals began, the Golden Knights had more Canadian players than the other three contenders:
But beyond that, they have the fewest American players. Nate Schmidt and Alex Tuch are basically the only U.S.-born players who see significant ice time. Contrast that with “CaTINO” (Canada’s team in name only). The Jets have roughly 10 players from the United States, ranging from captain Blake Wheeler to Dustin Byfuglien to Paul Stastny to Connor Hellebuyck. From a personnel perspective, the Jets are about as Canadian as Toby Keith.
