Former #Patriots RB Shane Vereen is expected to sign with the #Giants, I’m told. They needed a versatile back, will likely get it.

Vereen, 26, never emerged as a workhorse back in his four years since arriving as a 2011 second-round pick out of California. The Patriots are all about interchanging their running backs, and Vereen developed a specialty role as a weapon catching passes out of the backfield. He has seven career receiving touchdowns. In 2014, he had career highs in rushing attempts (96) and rushing yards (391). His career average is 4.2 yards per rushing attempt.
