Quote:
The Eagles announced on Wednesday that they have signed Blount. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the deal is worth up to $2.8 million for the 2017 season while Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Cardinals also showed interest in Blount before he made his deal with Philly.

Blount ran 299 times for 1,161 yards and 18 touchdowns with the Patriots last season and New England reportedly made an offer for him to return, but it wasn’t where Blount wanted it to be and the Patriots have added Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee to the backfield in the interim.


If Blount puts up production close to what he did in NE then this is huge for Philadelphia. They now have a balanced offense to go along with their already very good defense.

Wait, don't the Patriots have the right to match the deal? Or did they already decline to do that?

Also, come on, nobody else could pony up 3 million for Blount?

I doubt he gets close. There was a large void between his production and his actual performance.

Good. I'd rather have him go to the Eagles than the Giants.

Expecting news that Ryan Mathews is being cut before the day is done.

Weird. Thought he was already cut.

Was hoping Ingram would be traded to Philly. Blount should be decent in Philly I think.

I think they were holding off cutting him after failing to land a RB in the draft to see if they could land one of their top free agent RB options.

What's wrong with Matthews? He somehow had a great game against the Ravens last year.

He's good when he doesn't fumble, get hurt, or drop passes.
