    Giants' Rashad Jennings said offense will be 'dominant' in 2015

    Running back Rashad Jennings believes the Giants have the tools to be one of the NFL's premier offenses in 2015. Citing the arrival of Shane Vereen, return of Victor Cruz and emergence of Odell Beckham, Jennings, via the New York Daily News, said he's optimistic that the offense will cause plenty of problems this season. "I think we're going to have a dominant offense," Jennings said. "Eli [Manning] is really comfortable in the offense now — being able to control a lot from the line of scrimmage." The Giants started slow offensively a year ago but caught fire down the stretch when Manning and Beckham began hooking up for big plays. The Giants scored 24 or more points in their final six games of the 2014 season.

    Giants expected to keep Rashad Jennings despite landing Vereen

    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.
