Draft Scout LeGarrette Blount News
08/20/17 - RB LeGarrette Blount has not looked very good in the first two preseason games. He has rushed for just 17 yards on nine carries and hasn't displayed much power or speed. Still, it's hard to fathom the Eagles releasing him.
05/17/17 - RB LeGarrette Blount joins the Eagles on one-year deal after rushing for 18 touchdowns with the Patriots last season.
The deal is worth up to a reported $2.8 million for the 30-year-old Blount, who entered free agency after the best season of his seven-year NFL career in 2016. Blount rushed for 1,161 yards on 299 carries and a league-high 18 TDs in the regular season. He gained 109 yards and scored a touchdown in the Patriots' three postseason contests last season, which ended with a second Super Bowl ring for the power running back.
05/11/17 - RB LeGarrette Blount, a free agent, reportedly received a $1.1 million tender from the Patriots on Tuesday, multiple media outlets reported.
With the offer, if Blount remains unsigned past July 22, he can play only for the Patriots during the 2017 season. If Blount signs somewhere prior to that date, the Patriots would get a bump in their standing for 2018 compensatory draft picks.
The 30-year-old rushed for 1,161 yards and a league-high 18 touchdowns last season.
The Ravens, Lions and Giants reportedly are interested in Blount. With the Patriots' tender, however, the signing team's standing in the compensatory-draft pool would be diminished.
01/23/17 - RB LeGarrette Blount had just 47 yards rushing on his 16 attempts in the win over the Steelers. Still, the big back was able to make his presence felt on a relatively quiet night. Blount carried what seemed like half of Pittsburgh's defense with him for an 18-yard, pile-moving gain to the goal line in the third quarter. The run set up Blount's 1-yard touchdown and, according to coach Bill Belichick, gave a boost to all who witnessed it -- not just the Patriots offense or the players on the sideline. "And the whole stadium, too," Belichick said. "That was a great play."
01/13/17 - RB LeGarrette Blount was removed from the injury report on Friday. Blount missed practice the previous two days due to illness in advance of New England's matchup against the visiting Houston Texans in a divisional round playoff game on Saturday night (8:15 p.m. ET). The 30-year-old Blount registered an NFL-best 18 rushing touchdowns and team-leading 1,161 yards on 299 carries this season for the top-seeded Patriots (14-2).
