Shane Vereen signs deal with Saints

Still looking to shore up the backfield in the wake of Mark Ingram's four-game suspension to open the 2018 season, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with 29-year-old free agent RB Shane Vereen, who spent the past three years playing sparingly for the New York Giants. Vereen, a pass-catching specialist, is likely being brought in to keep Alvin Kamara fresh during camp and the preseason. It will be hard for the eighth-year pro to make the 53-man roster as part of a young and talented Saints' backfield.

Fantasy Impact

Vereen is a solid pass-catcher but has never exceeded 96 carries or 391 rushing yards in any of his eight seasons. He's simply not much of a rusher and thus a poor replacement for Ingram's role. Unless something changes as the regular season approaches, this move isn't likely to have significant fantasy implications.
