Mutual Interest Between Blount and Patriots

Advertisement

Perhaps a reunion between running back LeGarrette Blount and the New England Patriots is not as far fetched as we think. Sources indicate that there’s in fact mutual interest between both parties to get a deal done to bring the NFL rushing touchdown leader back to Foxborough.

Blount had a career high in yards with 1,161 yards and was second to running back David Johnson in overall touchdowns with 18.

When asked about where he wanted to be in the future, Blount enthusiastically stated that he loved it in New England and that he still has so much left in the tank.

“I love being here, and they know I love being here,” Blount said. “I feel great. I’m 30 years old, not a lot of wear and tear on my body. I feel like I’ll be able to play for as long as I want.”

Initial reports came from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport who stated that a deal is in fact not impossible.

“I think that certainly would make some sense,” Rapoport said. “I know LeGarrette Blount would like to return to the Patriots, I know the Patriots would like him back.”

The Patriots were very hesitant to re-sign Blount because of a possible higher market demand. But now according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the Patriots are now the ones that hold all the cards

“You’re at the point where it’s clear that he’s not getting anything solid,” Garafolo stated. “So anything you can do to say, ‘If you come back to us, remember this is a place where you’ve had some success,’ they’re going to want him on the cheap obviously and he’s going to have to work his way into that backfield and take on that role that he’s had before, maybe even a smaller role now that Burkhead is there as well.”

With a stale market for the running back’s services, it’s a huge possibility that Blount will receive an offer to stay in New England that matches his contract numbers of last season. Which at only a year for $1 million, is not exactly the kind of money Blount had in mind this free agency.
