Safestrap has not been released by Hashcode for 4.4.2 on the Verizon phone because it doesn't allow for ROM slots.
You can use it in "unsafe" mode and flash into the stock slot, as long as you understand the risk.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
