Eagles’ Hoping LeGarrette Blount Sets Tempo For Offense

It was a little surprising to see former New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount remain on the free agency market, with little to no interest, for as long as he did.
Coming off a 1,000 yard season (yes, those are still impressive), 18 touchdowns and a Super Bowl championship, Blount was expected to have a more active market despite only averaging 3.9 yards per carry last season.
The Eagles, who have a crowded backfield as it is are hoping Blount balances their offensive attack and general manager Howie Roseman believes that he will “set the tempo”.
Roseman is hoping that Blount’s skillset compliments that of fellow Eagles’ running backs Darren Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, Donnell Pumphrey and Corey Clement.
