The New York Giants are reportedly bringing back veteran running back Matt Breida on a one-year deal.

Very good player staying in New York.

Breida played in all 17 games last season, starting one, gaining 220 yards on 54 attempts on the ground and catching 20 passes for 188 yards.
He is a solid veteran backup who is familiar with the Giants’ system that will serve as a backup to starter Saquon Barkley, who the Giants placed the franchise tag on last week.
Breida is also a valuable special teamer, playing on 37.7 percent of special team snaps last season.
