The New Orleans Saints signed free agent running back Shane Vereen on Wednesday to a contract. He previously played with the New York Giants.
In the past four months, he has had very little interest on the open market. This may because he did not have much of an impact with the Giants over the past three seasons, even last season with many injuries and Ben McAdoo’s disasterous offense.
There is no guarantee that Vereen will even make the roster. Even without Mark Ingram, who will miss the first four games after he’s been suspended for PED use, he’s likely to just be insurance for Alvin Kamara and the rest of the backs in training camp.
Last season in 16 games in a backup capacity, he had 45 carries for 164 yards. He also had 44 receptions for 253 yards.
With the Giants, he appeared in 37 games, including one start in 2016. He had 139 carries for 582 yards and a touchdown. He also had 114 receptions for 842 yards and four more touchdowns.
Prior to joining the Giants, Vereen spent the first four seasons of his NFL career with the New England Patriots. With the Bill Belichick led offense, he appeared in 42 games, including eight starts, as he had 217 carries for 907 yards and seven touchdowns. He also had 107 yards for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns.
