Philadelphia Eagles Sign Free Agent RB LeGarrette Blount
LeGarrette Blount has finally landed a home and it will be with the Philadelphia Eagles.
This offseason the Philadelphia Eagles have done a good job adding pieces to their running back core. During the NFL Draft they added San Diego State star running back Donnel Pumphrey and signed Wisconsin running back Corey Clement as a UDFA and now Blount has been added to the roster.
LeGarrette Blount is joining the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year flier. Blount, 30, will be coming to Eagles team where he will get a nice bulk of carries even in a crowded backfield. The addition of Blount puts the roster spot of Ryan Mathews in danger as the Eagles will save $4 million against the cap with his release.
The Eagles have done a great job this offseason adding pieces to their roster to get this team back into the playoffs. With the addition of Blount, Jeffery, Derek Barnett and the help from Sidney Jones down the line the Eagles are looking at one of the best young and explosive teams for years to come.
