Vereen had a second triceps surgery this offseason after he re-injured the problem that originally landed him on injured reserve.

Summary

Shane Vereen missed 11 games last year with a torn triceps and accepted a $1 million pay cut to remain in New York. His willingness to adjust his salary ensures he'll return to a familiar role as the change-of-pace back and primary receiving back. Vereen no longer has the fantasy upside he once did. Fantasy owners salivated at the idea of unleashing Vereen on a new team when he signed with New York (after four years in New England), but his first season as a Giant was a mirror image of his Patriots' career. In 16 games, Vereen ran for 260 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and caught 59 receptions and 495 yards (8.4) to go along with four touchdowns. He's valuable to the offense, particularly in the passing game. But he's not - nor will he ever be - a starting NFL running back. (May 21)

Giants | Shane Vereen ready to go (Fri May 19, 09:54 PM) - New York Giants RB Shane Vereen (triceps) is fully recovered after tearing his triceps twice last season.

Our View: Vereen is going to have a chance for snaps in a Giants backfield that is up in the air in 2017. Paul Perkins and Wayne Gallman will compete with Vereen for touches, but both of those young backs are currently ahead in the pecking order.
