NEW YORK GIANTS SIGNING LINEBACKER KELVIN SHEPPARD…
According to the player himself, the New York Giants are signing unrestricted free agent linebacker Kelvin Sheppard (Miami Dolphins). Sheppard visited the Giants last Monday.

The 28-year old, 6’2”, 249-pound Sheppard was originally drafted in the 3rd round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He was traded to the Indianapolis Colts in April 2013 and signed with the Dolphins in September 2014. In five NFL seasons, Sheppard has only missed three regular-season games, starting 45 contests. In 2015, he started 13 games and finished the season with 105 tackles and two pass defenses. Sheppard has good size, but he’s a journeyman who doesn’t make many game-changing plays.
