Vereen (triceps) is scheduled to receive a $500,000 roster bonus on March 13, reports.

It would thus make sense for the Giants to release Vereen before March 13 if they don't plan to keep him for 2017. While the late-season emergence of Paul Perkins could make Vereen expendable in the wake of an injury-plagued 2016 campaign, the veteran pass-catching back doesn't have an overly cumbersome contract. Vereen might even be willing to forgo the roster bonus or accept a smaller base salary in exchange for more guaranteed money as he enters the final year of his three-year deal.
