Vereen received no guarantee in his contract if he’s not on the Saints’ roster for Week 1 of the regular season.

Vereen was part of a minicamp tryout with the Saints after which the team signed Terrance West, softening the blow of losing Mark Ingram for the first four games of the season due to a performance-enhancing drug violation.

Alvin Kamara, Jonathan Williams and sixth-round pick Boston Scott are also part of a crowded depth chart that now includes Vereen.

Vereen, 29, played a role similar to that of Kamara during his most successful seasons with the New England Patriots. A seven-year veteran, he has 1,865 career receiving yards and 1,489 rushing yards.
