Shane Vereen felt Giants were best fit for him in free agency

by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/5/15) Running back Shane Veeren had a lot of options in free agency. The market is usually big for good players coming off a championship, per csnne.com.

Vereen fielded a number of offers from NFL teams but quickly decided the Giants were the best fit for him.

“There were other offers, but I felt like this was the right fit for me. I felt like this was the right place for me. And I haven’t looked back yet,” Vereen said. “It’s been a learning process, but it’s been fun. I couldn’t even tell you [how many offers I had] because it all happened so fast. Free agency opened and then by about noon West Coast time I was going to be a Giant. It happened so quickly, so I don’t even know if there was much thought process. There were a couple offers, but once I head the Giants were interested, I was very interested as well.”

Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns for the Patriots last season.

Giants new RB Shane Vereen showing versatility in OTAs

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/2/15) Giants new running back Shane Vereen is receiving a surprising amount of work in OTAs as both a ball carrier and pass-catcher.

"So far, so good," he told ESPN. "I'm just trying to keep my feet on the ground and learn everything I can to stay on top of the playbook."

The free agent who signed after helping the Patriots win the Super Bowl is battling Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams for playing time out of the backfield. He has been used in practice as more than just a third-down back. And he has impressed Tom Coughlin.

"He's a vey positive young man who's happy to be here and looks forward to contributing," Coughlin said. "When we brought him in, we thought, 'Here's a guy that catches the ball out of the backfield and would be another obvious weapon that would have to be defended.'"

Vereen racked up 838 yards and five touchdowns combined rushing and receiving a year ago.

Giants RB Shane Vereen will be more than third-down back

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/26/15) Giants running back Shane Vereen is being viewed as much more than just a third-down running back, according to nj.com.

The team is excited about his ability to catch passes out of the backfield, but he'll be relied on to do more than that.

"I see him in that regard as a pass receiver coming out of the backfield, a pass protector, a guy who runs the ball in the three-wide offense in the run game, if you will, which is very prevalent today in our sport," coach Tom Coughlin said at the NFL Annual Meetings this week. "So I see him in that regard."

Last season the Giants did not have one receiving touchdown by a running back. Vereen, formerly of the Patriots, had three receiving touchdowns out of the backfield last year.

"Well, you know what [Vereen] can do. Quite frankly, it's something from an attack standpoint we've had some success with, but not to the extent that he has," Coughlin said. "When you look at Vereen, a lot of the [Tom] Brady hookup with Vereen was the ball was almost automatically going to him. First down, if it was zone coverage, they were dropping the ball down and he would scoot. So we know that. Will we open it up to more parts of it?"

The 26-year-old has 907 yards rushing and seven touchdowns on the ground, adding 107 receptions for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns through the air in four years. 

Giants make RB Shane Vereen signing official, ink four others

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/11/15) The Giants announced they've signed running back Shane Vereen late Wednesday night. 

The New York Daily News previously reported that Vereen is being signed to a three-year, $12.35 million deal. Vereen rushed for 391 yards and two touchdowns in 2014. He added 447 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the passing game as well. 

“(I made this) decision with my family,” Vereen said, via the team's official website. “At the end of the day, I wanted to make a decision that was right for us, right for them, and this is a great organization. I was fortunate enough to play in New England with another great organization. This is not a step down; if anything, it is a step up. I am looking forward to the opportunity, and I am enjoying being in New York.” 

The Giants also announced the official signings of offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse, wide receiver/return specialist Dwayne Harris and linebackers Jonathan Casillas and J.T. Thomas III.

Giants expected to keep Rashad Jennings despite landing Vereen

by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/10/15) Despite their reported agreement with free agent running back Shane Vereen, the Giants are expected to retain running back Rashad Jennings in a crowded backfield with second-year bruiser Andre Williams, reports The Star-Ledger.

Jennings averaged 17.9 touches in the 11 games he played last season, averaging 3.8 yards per carry and rushing for four touchdowns while catching 30 passes for 226 yards. Williams ran for seven scores while averaging 3.3 yards per carry.

It's unclear how the Giants will divide up backfield work. Cutting Jennings after June 1 would save the team $2.25 million against the cap.
