NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports there is "mutual interest" between the Giants and free agent RB LeGarrette Blount.
With Mike Gillislee now in New England, Blount is on the lookout for a new team. The Giants make sense as they need a bigger complement to Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen, and Blount will not cost much money. That said, New York may want to wait to see who falls to them in the draft before turning to Blount. The 30-year-old rushed for 18 touchdowns last season. Apr 25 - 8:18 AM

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss believes the "door might soon be closed entirely" for free agent LeGarrette Blount if he waits too long to re-sign with the Patriots.

Blount has a standing offer from New England, but hasn't budged on his salary demands after leading the league with 18 rushing touchdowns. There's mutual interest in a reunion, but Reiss doesn't feel the Patriots "need" Blount with Rex Burkhead, Dion Lewis and James White under contract. If the Patriots draft a running back, it would likely signal the end of Blount's tenure in Foxboro.

According to the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe, free agent LeGarrette Blount "has no plans" to sign the Patriots' current offer.

The offer, per Howe, was made at the onset of free agency. Blount hasn't been connected to any other teams, so the Patriots have had no reason to up their offer. After they were able to get Blount back for $1 million last year, it sounds like they've lowballed him again after he rushed for 18 touchdowns and 1,131 yards in a career year. Blount will turn 31 this year. Rightfully, the Patriots aren't looking to commit much money to a one-dimensional back nearing his last legs.
Apr 10 - 1:04 PM

Jim McBride of the Boston Globe expects the Patriots to re-sign free agent LeGarrette Blount "sooner rather than later."

CSN New England reported Saturday that the Patriots have offered Blount a deal. Blount was seen hugging owner Bob Kraft at Wednesday's Celtics game. The 30-year-old had hoped to cash in after leading the league with 18 touchdowns last season, but his market didn't develop the way he thought. Blount is a one-dimensional role player whose best fantasy prospects remain in Foxboro.
Apr 9 - 11:11 AM

CSN New England's Michael Giardi reports free agent LeGarrette Blount has "an offer on the table" from the Patriots.

Giardi added both sides want to reunite, but money is the sticking point. Blount undoubtedly wants a raise on the $1 million he made while rushing for 18 touchdowns last season, but no team has been willing to meet his asking price to this point. He may have to settle for another low-cost deal from the Pats, who will have a logjam at running back if Blount re-signs.
Apr 8 - 12:35 AM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Patriots and free agent LeGarrette Blount have mutual interest in working out a contract.

Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman also reports it's a "fact" that New England wants Blount back in 2017 after he led the league with 18 rushing touchdowns and rushed for a career-high 1,161 yards. Blount's asking price appears to be what's holding this thing up, as he wants to make more than the $1 million he was paid in 2016. Blount has drawn no known interest outside of New England, though he had been loosely connected to the Giants and Lions earlier in the offseason.

Apr 5 - 9:39 AM

On NFL Network's Free Agency Frenzy, Mike Garafolo said the "expectation" is free agent LeGarrette Blount will not re-sign with the Patriots.

Coming off a 1,161-yard, 18-touchdown season, Blount likely wants to cash in, and the Patriots are not the organization to pay top dollar for a running back. Blount likely will not find as much money as he hopes in free agency, however, especially with the depth of talent in the draft. Blount is Rotoworld's No. 5 available running back.
Mar 7 - 1:21 PM

ESPN's Michael Rothstein expects the Lions to add a running back this offseason.

Zach Zenner was stellar down the stretch and both Ameer Abdullah (foot) and Theo Riddick (wrist) will return well before training camp, but Rothstein expects the Lions to add someone to one of the worst rushing attacks in the league. If they do, a low-cost power back in the mold of free agent LeGarrette Blount would make sense. Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine could be an option in the draft.

Feb 21 - 9:47 AM

Impending free agent LeGarrette Blount said he hopes to re-sign with the Patriots.

"I love being here, and they know I love being here," said Blount. "I feel great. I’m 30 years old, not a lot of wear and tear on my body. I feel like I’ll be able to play for as long as I want." Blount enjoyed a career year in 2016, rushing for 1,161 yards and a team record 18 touchdowns. He still can't catch passes and lost playing time to Dion Lewis down the stretch, but there's a good chance Blount will return to the Patriots on a team-friendly one-year deal.

Feb 11 - 9:45 AM

LeGarrette Blount was held to 31 yards on 11 carries in Super Bowl 51.

Blount also lost a first-quarter fumble, just his first fumble since Week 2 and first lost fumble since Week 1. The Falcons surprisingly dominated the line of scrimmage in this one, creating constant disruption with DT Grady Jarrett and refusing to let Blount reach the second level. Blount was a big part of the Patriots' early-game plan and had nine carries at halftime, but he didn't touch the ball in the fourth quarter as the Patriots played pass-first offense in comeback mode. An impending free agent, Blount turned 30 in December. The Patriots will likely try to retain Blount on another cheap, one-year deal.
Feb 5 - 10:32 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed 16 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught his only target for eight yards Sunday in the Patriots' AFC Championship Game win over the Steelers.

Blount has spent the past month playing second fiddle to Dion Lewis but that changed on Sunday as he led the backfield with 17 touches. He was mostly held in check but did break out for a big run in the second half. Blount carried a host of defenders on his back en route to a highlight-reel 18-yard scramble in the third quarter. He plunged ahead for a one-yard touchdown on the following play. New England’s running game comes and goes but when they’re committed to it, the 250-pound Blount is always tough to bring down. Blount and the Patriots are headed to Super Bowl LI, where they will take on the Falcons at NRG Stadium in Houston two weeks from today.
Jan 22 - 9:56 PM

LeGarrette Blount played 27 of the Patriots' 69 offensive snaps in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Texans.

Dion Lewis led the backfield with 33 offensive snaps. Blount's workload is somewhat deceiving as a handful of his snaps came in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. Already a non-factor on passing downs, Blount keeps falling further behind Lewis, even losing goal-line work on Saturday. We'd expect Lewis to operate as the lead back once again in next week's AFC Championship Game against Kansas City or Pittsburgh.

LeGarrette Blount managed 31 yards on eight carries in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Texans.

After Blount missed two practices this week due to an illness, Dion Lewis got the start and stole the show with three touchdowns, operating as the Patriots' feature back on 15 touches to Blount's eight. Blount got a goal-line carry late in the first half, but he was stuffed and forced the Pats to settle for a field goal. Blount’s best run came in fourth-quarter clock-killing mode, stumbling into an 18-yard gain. Lewis looks poised to operate as the Patriots' lead back in the AFC Championship Game.
Jan 14 - 11:40 PM

LeGarrette Blount (illness) is not listed on the Patriots' final injury report for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Texans.

An illness prevented Blount from practicing on Wednesday and Thursday but he was never in danger of missing Saturday's Divisional Round game. Blount rushed for 105 yards and two touchdowns when he faced the Texans in Week 3. He's been losing carries to Dion Lewis recently, though Blount still gets all of New England's goal-line work.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Houston has been great against the run over their past four games, holding opposing RBs to 68 RuYds/Gm (5th best) while allowing the 3rd fewest FPPG to the position over that span. Blount's missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday shouldn't hurt, but Dion Lewis' presence may. Lewis actually had 33 first half touches over the last three games compared to 20 for Blount, so there is merit in GPPs for swapping to Lewis as a lower-owned option. Blount still has multi-TD upside with NE instilled as a large favorite.
Jan 13 - 4:20 PM

LeGarrette Blount (illness) took part in team meetings Friday.

He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, but Blount should be able to get up for Saturday night's Divisional Round game against the Texans.
