Shane Vereen explains what makes him a unique player in the NFL
In an interview with Dan Salomone of Giants.com. Vereen discussed the origin of his love for the game, his inspiration and what it will be like to face the New England Patriots again. The newest Giant also details the way he approaches the game and what he looks for when out on the field.
"I think what makes me unique is just the way I approach the game. I think about the game a little bit differently than most running backs do. I don’t have the big size as the big bruiser backs. I have some speed, I have some good quickness. I kind of look at the game differently, I take pride in doing all things that’s asked of a running back. Me out in the open field against linebackers or one-on-one with safeties, those are matchups that I look for."
