Report: Patriots Free Agent RB LeGarrette Blount To Visit With Steelers
After already meeting with Jacksonville Jaguars free agent running back Maurice Jones-Drew this past, the Pittsburgh Steelers have now scheduled a visit with another free agent running back.
According to the National Football Post, New England Patriots free agent running back LeGarrette Blount will be in Pittsburgh Sunday night for a visit.
Blount rushed for 772 yards and seven touchdowns last season for the Patriots and the Steelers should know a lot about him already as they had him in for a pre draft visit back in 2010.
Blount was originally signed by the Tennessee Titans as an undrafted free agent in 2010 out of Oregon and has since played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Patriots. During his career, he’s rushed for 2,711 yards and 20 touchdowns on 579 regular season carries.
In addition to playing running back for the Patriots in 2013, Blount also returned 17 kickoffs for 494 yards and two of those returns went for 40 or more yards.
Update: Ed Bouchette is now reporting the visit will take place on Monday.
