It has been announced and first reported by NFL Network's Mike Garafolo that the New Orleans Saints are signing veteran running back, Shane Vereen.

As Mike mentioned, Vereen has played for the New England Patriots and New York Giants. He broke into the league with the Patriots and played his first four years in the league in New England and the last three with the Giants.

Vereen is 29 years old and is more known for his prowess to catch the ball out of the backfield as more of a third-down back. With Mark Ingram being suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season it seems as though the Saints will utilize Alvin Kamara as their early down back and Vereen as the third-down back.
