New Orleans Saints sign veteran running back Shane Vereen from Giants

    19 de julio de 2018

    Sports Desk, USA, Jul 18 (efe-epa).- The New Orleans Saints have signed running back Shane Vereen from the New York Giants, the franchise said on Wednesday.

    Vereen is a seven-year veteran of the league, having played four seasons at New England, where he won the Super Bowl in 2014, before moving to the New York Giants.

    The 29-year-old will add more depth to an already potent Saints running game, whose dual threat of Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram Jr. were a huge part of New Orleans' deep playoff run.

    Vereen will also provide quarterback Drew Brees with another reliable target out of the back field as the Saints bid to go one step further than last season, when they came within seconds of reaching the Super Bowl.
