I'm no fan of Blount but he's better than what they have currently. Unfortunate that they haven't tried to upgrade the RB spot

I agree, I am non to thrilled with this, Blount seems to have lost something it was notable all year. The Pats IMO need to draft a big back that can catch at least some.

WOOOooo Blount's back Very Happy Very Happy

I guess I'm the only Blount fan here. Really looking forwards to Blount with a hopefully better Oline

It came down the the promise-never-kept Tyler Gaffney, versus the known-but-limited quality, Blount. It was the right decision. Dion Lewis is a gamble, two gambles at the position was potential suicide, given the lack of backup quality.

They have the roster spots and money for both. I don't think the Gaffney release is directly related to Blount coming back

Eh...


I sincerely still hope the Patriots invest in a young RB of the same type with a draft slot.

A young RB of the same type...?

I'd prefer a young RB who is balanced and not a 2 down power back who sucks at actually getting through the LOS.

What they've really missed is a guy who can be a threat on 1st down and 3rd down. Or even a guy on 1st down who can be relied upon to move the chains with regularity.

Well. Time to call up Green-Ellis
