New England Patriots running back Shane Vereen told SiriusXM NFL Radio’s “Movin’ the Chains” show that their offense still has a bad taste in their mouth after the way last season ended after not scoring a point in the second half of the AFC title game against the Ravens.
“I think as an offense we felt like we slipped up, especially at the end of the season, the way the season ended. Going into OTAs, that was our focus,” Vereen said, via ESPNBoston.com. “There is still a lot we need to work on, there are a lot of new faces, it’s still a younger offense, and so we have a lot of jelling to do. But I think we’re on the right track.”
Vereen is looking forward to picking up the slack left behind by Danny Woodhead.
“Being able to play and contribute to the team is what I look forward to doing, being able to help the team win. You can’t replace Danny Woodhead, though. What I learned from him [can’t be measured]. I’ll be able to take that and it will help me become a better player. I wish him the best of luck in San Diego; I know he’s doing well. You can’t replace him, what he brought to the team, and what he brought to the running back room; his leadership was more than we could ask for.”
