Shane Vereen enjoys multiple roles in Patriots’ offense

FOXBOROUGH — One of the highlights of the Patriots’ preseason came in the first exhibition game against the Eagles, when running back Shane Vereen, lined up wide at the snap with linebacker Mychal Kendricks in coverage, ran a stutter to get separation, and then was in perfect position for a sideline touchdown pass from Tom Brady.

It was another example of what Vereen can do, and gave notice that he is ready to build on his three-touchdown performance against the Texans in last season’s playoffs.
