LeGarrette Blount Believes Steelers Have Top Five Running Back Duo
In case you missed it, new Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount was a guest earlier this week on SiriusXM NFL Radio and audio from that segment is embedded below.
During his interview, Blount talks about how he was hoping the Steelers would’ve drafted him back in 2010 after having him in for a pre draft visit. Blount also talked about being surprised at what the free agent market wound up being for the running back position this year and how he doesn’t believe that Toby Gerhart should have been the highest paid running back this offseason based on his body of work.
At the end of the interview, Blount says that critics shouldn’t sleep on the Steelers current tandem of himself and second-year running back Le’Veon Bell in 2014.
“Tell all of these NFL Network and ESPN analysts, and all off these people, that my family of me and Le’Veon are a top five duo in this league. It’s so disrespectful.”
