Patriots | Shane Vereen trying to make most of opportunities

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had a nice showing Thursday, Aug. 9, against the New Orleans Saints. He rushed 11 times for 64 yards during the second half of the game, picking up 73 total yards on the team's 97-yard touchdown drive. Vereen also caught two passes for 17 yards and served as the team's third-down back later in the game when rookie Brandon Bolden was worked in on first and second down. "You are only given so many opportunities. To be able to go out there and be able to play well as an offense - we still have a ton, a ton to work on and get better with - but for that little drive I felt like the offense, we did pretty well," Vereen said.
