Saints sign running back Shane Vereen, waive Daniel Lasco

(WVUE) - With Mark Ingram out the first four games of the 2018 regular season, the Saints bolstered their backfield with the signing of Shane Vereen.

Last year with the Giants, he averaged only 3.6 yards per carry, and a career low zero touchdowns.

To make room for Vereen, the Saints waived Daniel Lasco with a waived/failed physical designation. He was drafted by the Black and Gold in 2016 in the seventh round.
