LETS GO BABY. Blunts all around. LeGarrette re-signs with the Patriots on a 1 year deal base salary $760,000/ roster bonus $100,000/ signing bonus $100,000/ performance incentives $1 million. Typical Patriots contract, really 0 risk on both sides. If production dips it is a one year deal and the Patriots won't have to pay out near $1 million. But I bet Blount makes most of that incentive money.
The Patriots got murdered because of their offensive line problems and injury woes at the running back position. Once Blount went down, there was really nobody to pound the rock for 2-3 yards, especially with that pukable line we had last year.
The Pats did nothing to fill the role Blount has played here over the years this offseason, and they are low on quality draft picks. Re-signing him was an extremely smart move, he kinda reminds me of the football equivalent of Evan Turner. He can play like shit a good amount of the time but a little less than half the time he shows out and just murks people.
Glad to see the guy back in blue and red.
