Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard will have a different look for the 2021 season.
Shepard posted a sneak preview of it on Instagram on Tuesday. The picture shows Shepard in a No. 3 blue Giants jersey with a caption that the wideout is “getting back to my roots.”
Shepard wore No. 3 at the University of Oklahoma before joining the Giants as a second-round pick in 2016. He wore No. 87 for his first five NFL seasons.
Wide receiver Derrick Dillon is the only other non-quarterback, kicker, or punter on the Giants roster with a single-digit jersey. Dillon, who signed a futures contract in January, is No. 6. The Giants have retired No. 1, No. 4, and No. 7, which leaves no single-digit numbers unaccounted for on their roster.
