Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Captain or not, Sterling Shepard will lead

Coach Joe Judge said Monday that players had voted Monday morning and “we have our captains.” Judge, though, wasn’t ready to spill the beans to media since he had not yet informed players.

There is no media availability on Tuesday, so unless the Giants decide to let us in on the secret it will be another day before we find out.

Veteran wide receiver Sterling Shepard, the longest-tenured Giant on the current roster, might be a captain. He might. not. Either way, he says he will continue to lead in his own way.

“If that’s how my team views me, then I’d be happy to take that role. But if not, I’m also happy to take a different leadership role, just because you’re only allowed so many guys to be captains and I clearly understand that,” Shepard said on Monday. “Pretty much my whole career, I’ve never been voted a captain. But I’ve always been a leader in my own way, so that’s what I’ll continue to do.”
