If Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount is on the bubble in Philadelphia, somebody should probably tell coach Doug Pederson.
Becuase Pederson praised the veteran back’s work, and suggested that he’s not really on the bubble at all.
Via Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Pederson was asked about Blount’s possible roster status, the Eagles coach said: “The guy’s a beast of a runner.”
Pederson also said he expects Blount to be “a big part of our offense.”

The Blount story has really picked up steam the last few days in Philly as the Wendell Smallwood hype also exploded in that time. Blount appeared slow on a couple of sweep runs last week and it had many wondering how much he has in the tank after 299 carries last season. Blount also fumbled after catching a pass on the Eagles' first team's most productive drive to that point of the game with Buffalo.
