Shane Vereen: Agrees to injury settlement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints released Vereen (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, per the NFL's transaction log.

The reason for Vereen's placement on IR on Aug. 31 was never revealed, but the running back will recover away from the team for an unknown amount of time. Once the terms of the settlement are up, he'll be eligible to re-sign with the Saints. Before then, though, he can join another organization.

Saints' Shane Vereen: Hitting IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints will place Vereen on injured reserve, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Vereen's 53-man roster status was precarious before the cuts, but it appears he's battling an issue that could keep him out the remainder of the season. There's a chance to two sides reach an injury settlement in the near future as well, which would free him to sign with another team.

Saints' Shane Vereen: Catches three passes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen caught each of his three targets for 14 yards in Friday's preseason game against Arizona.

Vereen logged 14 snaps on offense, with his first reception coming shortly before halftime. Though he hasn't generated any buzz since signing with the Saints a month ago, the 29-year-old could land on the 53-man roster if the team doesn't trust Jonathan Williams or Boston Scott to handle passing downs in the event of an Alvin Kamara injury. Williams seems to be winning the battle for the No. 2 running back job during Mark Ingram's four-game suspension.

Shane Vereen: Headed to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Saints, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The Saints have been looking at veteran running backs ever since the announcement of Mark Ingram's four-game suspension, previously showing interest in the likes of DeMarco Murray and Jamaal Charles. The team ultimately settled on Terrance West and now Vereen, a pass-catching specialist who averaged just 3.6 yards on 45 carries and 5.8 yards on 44 receptions for the Giants last season. The Saints likely will give Alvin Kamara more work on early downs while Ingram serves his suspension, potentially opening up a few snaps for Vereen in obvious passing situations. The 29-year-old will first need to earn a spot on the 53-man roster, as he'll compete with West, Boston Scott, Trey Edmunds and Jonathan Williams for what likely will be two or three jobs.

Shane Vereen: Still unsigned
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Vereen remains unsigned, NJ.com's Ryan Dunleavy reports.

Vereen should eventually find a chance to compete for a roster spot, but he's unlikely to secure much in the way of guaranteed money after averaging just 3.6 yards per carry and 5.8 yards per reception last season for the Giants. The 29-year-old passing-down specialist hasn't done much of note since 2015.
