New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount says he would like another run with the franchise
His game on Sunday against the Denver Broncos was not bright and they lost the AFC title to them. His performance did not stand out as he had 6 rushing yards. He had in his previous three games had managed an average of 143 rushing yards.
This season Blount has managed seven touchdowns and a total of 772 yards. If the Patriots show no interest in him and do not offer a contract he will become a free agent the coming offseason. Blount said that he would love to be a part of the team again.
"I would love to be back here with this group," said Blount.
Blount has evolved into a better player with the team. His performance with the progress of the season has improved steadily and head coach for the Patriots Bill Belichick has a huge role to play in his development. With the talent he has shown the Patriots will definitely want him back in the team. He still needs to be honed down into a better player but the potential he has shown is enough to have any franchise show interest in him. At 27 years, he has his good years to offer to any team that ends up hiring him.
His performance this season and the improvement he has shown will be the elements that decide his value and the contract offered to him by the Patriots. This season he has shown considerable progress in his game. This means that the other franchises will also have their eyes on him and the Patriots will be in somewhat a competition to offer a better contract to a talented potential.
Blount said that it was heartbreaking to lose when they were this close to the Super Bowl.
“It meant a lot to me, getting a chance to come in and play," Blount said. "Getting a chance to contribute to all the success that we've had and to have it end like this is terrible."
