Giants WR Sterling Shepard said in an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio Saturday that’s excited about the team’s receiving corps this year now that they brought in Brandon Marshall and Evan Engram to go along with Odell Beckham and himself.

“I’m very excited a part of that good group of guys,” Shepard said, via “Especially having Odell and Brandon on the outside now is going to help free up the inside for Evan [Engram] and I. That’s every wide receiver’s dream to have two great guys on the outside that are going to draw a lot of attention. That’s what you’re getting with those two. We should have a feast in the inside if we prepare good enough.
