How LeGarrette Blount fits with the Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Free Agency 20 Best Players Still Available on Free Agent Market

The Patriots promptly claimed Blount off waivers, and his 2014 season provides an interesting test case: He gained 266 yards on 65 carries, 4.1 yards per carry, as a Steeler, 281 yards on 60 carries, 4.7 yards per carry, as a Patriot.

New Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount had other options to chose from in free agency. It has been understood for some time that Ryan Mathews, who has filled that role, will be released as soon as he's 100 percent healthy. 800 yards and 6-9 scores would be acceptable. May. This offseason, it was clear that the Patriots weren't that interested in signing him.

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe both congratulated Moon on Wednesday. It said Moon told Abe that it was emotionally hard for South Koreans to accept the agreement.

Blount joins a cast of running backs that includes Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, Byron Marshall and rookies Donnel Pumphrey and Corey Clement. However, the long-term status of many players expected to make contributions is questionable enough to consider the express goal of 2017 to be another building year for Carson Wentz.

"LeGarrette Blount is a tough, physical runner who has enjoyed a great deal of success in New England, and we are excited about adding him to this football team", Eagles Vice President of Football Operations Howie Roseman said Wednesday in a statement. Many ex-Patriot running backs, including Blount, who left New England after his first stint there, have not fared well in other offenses. Yet, it's the evil empire in Foxborough with the five Super Bowl rings. The Patriots ostensibly said "If nobody wants him, we will gladly take him back on our terms if we so choose". Two weeks later in the divisional round of the playoffs, Blount torched Indy (with those same 24 carries) for 166 yards and 4, yes 4 touch downs. His run in New England was over when in the off season, Blount signed with the Steelers. By doing this, the Patriots will get compensatory picks back in return now that such a major part of their team has departed. Many wonder if the Eagles are resetting around Wentz or trying to win now by signing veterans like Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Blount to short-term contracts. The Patriots have made optimists out of perhaps the most cynical fan base in sports. While he seemingly loved being with the Patriots, he felt it was time for him to move on. "That's what I would have went professional in if I didn't play football". Blount has two Super Bowl championship rings to prove it. Gillislee may be good, but up to this point he does not have the track record that Dillon had when he came over from Cincinnati.

"It's not going to work out", Tanguay said Thursday.

"When [players] come to New England and they look at Brady and you see what Brady does and he sets the bar", Tanguay said.
