Blount Signs with the Eagles

May 17, 2017

Former Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount has found a new home in the NFL. Following his Super Bowl winning run with the New England Patriots, Blount had his contract re-structured by the Pats.

That move allowed him to find another option which ultimately led him to Philadelphia.

Ian Rapoport of reports his contract is worth $2.8 million.

Last season Blount scored a league-leading 18 touchdowns for the Patriots. The Eagles have a stable of running backs but none of which bring the thunder quite like Blount does.

The Eagles also signed receiver Alshon Jeffery as another upgrade to its offensive arsenal.
