Saints add veteran RB Shane Vereen

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran running back Shane Vereen in a move that could help the club respond to Mark Ingram’s early season suspension.

Vereen, whose signing was announced by the club on Wednesday, has served as a runner and receiver with New England and the New York Giants during seven NFL seasons.

He gained 838 yards from scrimmage and scored five touchdowns for the Patriots’ 2014 squad that won the Super Bowl.
