RB LeGarrette Blount signing with Eagles, according to reports


A huge piece of the puzzle.

The Patriots wanted to keep Blount but can not agree on contract value with the running back asking for more guaranteed money, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com. The newest hulking Eagle showed up for his introductory press conference testing the seams on the sleeves of his new long-sleeve shirt.

So just how much does he weigh?

Time will tell how that unfolds, but no more time is needed to sum up Blount's time in New England: It was productive, with a mix of power running and passionate fun.

Teams likely were hesitant to sign Blount because he would count towards their comp pick formula, but the Eagles weren't likely any getting comp picks anyway, so it didn't matter to them.

"Right now, I just want to make sure whatever decision I make". Undrafted free agent Corey Clement also joined Pumphrey in the mix of veteran and youth tailbacks.

Last year, the Eagles top-two leading rushers, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles, combined for 1,099 rushing yards on 249 attempts.

The Cardinals have Andre Ellington in reserve and used a fifth-round pick on running back T.J. "I like the way they play ball, so I felt it was the ideal fit". "I split time with Stevan Ridley, I split time with Cadillac Williams". I like the guys here. He reunited with the Patriots and helped them on the way to the Super Bowl by accounting for 148 yards and three scores in the AFC title game win over the Colts. During 2016, he racked up 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns. If he can produce half that number in 2017, that would still be more than any player the Eagles had in 2016.

Blount could earn up to $2.8 million this season, per reports. And, heck, Pederson isn't exactly known for running the football.

As of now, Kerwynn Williams, Elijhaa Penny, T.J. Logan and undrafted rookie James Summers round out the depth chart, with Andre Ellington - who has played running back in his first four National Football League seasons - transitioning to receiver. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the only other player since 1933 to change teams after a season in which he was the NFL's outright leader in rushing touchdowns was Greg Bell, who went from the Rams to the Raiders in 1990.

In overtime, the Patriots took the ball and didn't give it back.
