Title: Legarette Blount FA
Post by: LaSeeno on April 02, 2017, 05:41:19 PM
Any reason the Packers aren't looking?  Seems like a good fit for a 1-2 with Montgomery.

Must be either: Money, or injury/attitude.

Don't remember much interest at all for Blount by any team.

Heard on NFL Total Access that Blount wants to "get paid" cuz he scored like 18 TD's last season.

Teams are playing a waiting game with him and AP.

Speaking of Blount and AP, there is a school of thought that the Pats bringing in AP for a visit was a signal to Blount that he was replaceable. And in NE, every player is on the block- except one. At least for the foreseeable future.

Yeah....I heard since the untouchable one's declared he's gonna play till he cant walk anymore, NE's considering trading him to CLE  -  to beat GB to the punch!  :)

New England invokes some obscure rule to try and corral Blount:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19352288/new-england-patriots-issue-rare-9-tender-legarrette-blount (http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19352288/new-england-patriots-issue-rare-9-tender-legarrette-blount)

Seems like a hedge until after July 22; meantime LB can still sign with another team, which would possibly garner NE a comp pick.  If I’m understanding this rule, and the comp pick rule, NE would get a comp pick only if a new deal for Legarette was a “top 32” among all free agents. Correct?    ? - : #

Still, given the circumstances, it seems like a pretty shrewd personnel move by Wild Bill...again...

Eagles are signing former Patriots' RB LeGarrette Blount to a one-year deal, per team official.
Cardinals also had some mild interest.

Blount had an excellent season last year. Will he have a repeat performance this year? Doubtful. But I wish him the best of luck, I guess. He''s not a Packer, and won't be facing the Packers, so my interest is minimal.
