Retired New York Giants great Victor Cruz is predicting big things from his former teammate Sterling Shepard this season.

“I think watch out for Sterling Shepard,” Cruz told TMZ Sports this week. “I think he’s going to be a guy… that’s going to do some really big things this year that might slip under the radar.”

Shepard has looked spectacular in training camp and in preseason games this summer. He has been getting more opportunities with big-ticket free agent Kenny Golladay and first-round draft pick Kadarius Toney both sidelined with hamstring strains.

Shepard has been a steady producer on the Giants’ offense since they he was drafted in the second round out of Oklahoma back in 2016. He has averaged 63 catches and 704 receiving yards per season over his five year career.

Shepard’s recent issues have been health. In 2019, he missed six games and then missed four more last year. This summer he is healthy and — Cruz is right — he could be poised for a huge season.

Cruz alos was quick to point out that this could be the final season for quarterback Daniel Jones as the Giants’ starter if he fails to take the next step.
