Rapoport: RB LeGarrette Blount still an option for Pats

MassLive - [Full Article]

According to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, LeGarrette Blount remains an option in New England.

"I know LeGarrette Blount would like to return to the Patriots, I know the Patriots would like him back," Rapoport said. "But at this point, the salary has not been more than some of the other running backs on the roster already make, especially some of the newly acquired ones in Rex Burkhead, so they're just not there yet as far as getting LeGarrette Blount back in the fold for the Patriots. Maybe this spurs things along, or maybe he's able to get a visit somewhere that will let the Patriots know that he has other suitors."

Fantasy Impact: 

The story said the Giants could also be interested in Blount, who is likely looking for a multiyear deal. The Adrian Peterson meeting has come and done without a signing, so attention could turn back to Blount for the Pats.
