Coughlin Implies Larger Role for Shane Vereen


Shane Vereen turned heads this month when he tabbed his signing with the New York Giants as a “step up” after four seasons in New England.

Vereen also went out of his way to praise Bill Belichick and the Patriots, but talked about his move to Gotham as an “opportunity” to grow on the field. Giants coach Tom Coughlin sounds open to that plan after alluding to Vereen as someone who will make New York less predictable on offense.

“I see him in that regard as a pass receiver coming out of the backfield, a pass protector, a guy who runs the ball in the three-wide offense in the run game, if you will, which is very prevalent today in our sport,” Coughlin said during the NFL Annual Meeting, per Jordan Raanan of NJ.com. “So I see him in that regard.”
