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
Thomas will earn $4.5 million in guaranteed money in the deal, which is worth a total of $12 million. He racked up a career-high 84 tackles and recorded two interceptions in his second season with the Jaguars last year.
The team has yet to decide whether to tender any of its restricted free agents. Both Alualu and Thomas received negative overall ratings from Pro Football Focus in 2014.
Others listed as probable include:
Andre Branch, Khairi Fortt, and Denard Robinson are out.
