Shane Vereen to stay with Giants, ‘part of their 2017 plans’

Shane Vereen to stay with Giants, ‘part of their 2017 plans’

The New York Giants are poised to pay the $500,000 roster bonus due to running back Shane Vereen before Monday’s deadline, according to the NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones.


2016 wasn’t so kind to the 28-year-old Vereen. After two respectable seasons with New York, he landed on injured reserve with a triceps injury, only to return late in the season and re-tear the muscle in Week 15.

The pass-catching RB had 59 catches in the previous two years, proving his usefulness to QB Eli Manning on third downs especially.

A healthy Vereen is what the Giants are counting on in 2017.
