Eagles Poach LeGarrette Blount From The Patriots, Finally Have A Goal Line Back
The Eagles finally get a goal line back. They must have seen how truly tiny Donnel Pumphrey was at rookie mini-camp and realized they needed some actual size in there. Blount is the type of physical back the Eagles improved passing attack and newly-healthy offensive line deserves. He won’t be an every down back, but he’s the biggest running back the Eagles have had since, what, Thomas Tapeh?
It’s also nice to subvert the Patriots, who were clearly trying to do some sneaky shit by tendering Blount late.
Now we have a back who can play with a little violence.
