The New York Giants announced Tuesday that they’ve officially placed RB Shane Vereen on injured reserve and signed CB Michael Hunter to their active roster.
- The Giants also signed DB Doran Grant to their practice squad.
It’s still possible that Vereen could be brought back from injured reserve at a later point in the year.
Vereen, 27, signed a three-year, $12.35 million that included $5 million guaranteed with the Giants back in March of last year. He’s stands to make base salaries of $3.15 million over the final two years of the agreement.
Vereen’s 2016 season comes to an end with him appearing in three games and rushing for 147 yards on 31 carries (4.7 YPC) to go along with eight receptions for 75 yards receiving and one touchdown.
Hunter, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State back in May. He stands to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.
The Giants, unfortunately, waived Hunter coming out of the preseason before later signing him to their practice squad. He was recently promoted to the active roster only to be waived a few days later.
During his college career, Hunter recorded 98 tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss, four interceptions, a forced fumble and 12 pass defenses.
