LeGarrette Blount wanted a team to “give me some money.”
The Patriots, at least to some degree, are willing.
New England is known for not overly investing at running back, often allowing even its most productive veterans to walk via free agency. Blount currently has an “offer on the table” from the Patriots, Mike Giardi of CSN New England reported Friday. This is less a development and more an update on where the situation stands. That Blount has yet to accept indicates the deal’s numbers and/or structure do not meet his expectation.
The team hosted Adrian Peterson Monday but it's believed the price wasn't right and the story went on to say Blount, at the right price, seems like the preferred option.
