Steelers New RB LeGarrette Blount To Wear No. 27

blount27According to a Monday report, new Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount will wear jersey No. 27.

Blount wore No. 27 during his first three seasons in the league with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but had to wear No. 29 with the New England Patriots last season.

For the last four seasons, Jonathan Dwyer has worn No. 27 with the Steelers. Dwyer, however, signed with the Arizona Cardinals this offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Prior to Dwyer wearing No. 27 for the Steelers, defensive back Joe Burnett wore it during the 2009 season.
