RB LeGarrette Blount tells Rich Eisen about his desired future with the Patriots

New, comments

The Patriots running back will be a free agent in March.

New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount joined Rich Eisen to discuss his future in New England. Blount is set to be a free agent in March and the 30-year-old running back is coming off the best season of his career.

“I mean, I don’t know what the future hold,” Blount said. “That’s something for them [Patriots] and my agent to discuss. I love being here, they know I love being here. This is one of the best organizations in the entire NFL, in sports in general, and I don’t know anybody that wouldn’t want to be a part of it.”

Blount has spent the better part of the past four seasons in New England (apart from an 11-game blip with the Steelers) and he has gained 3,532 yards from scrimmage in 57 total games. Blount just set the Patriots franchise single-season record for rushing touchdowns with 18 in 2016. He currently ranks 10th in franchise history with 2,917 regular season rushing yards.

The 250-pound running back went on to explain why he wants to remain in New England.

“You play to win,” Blount said, “and that’s all they do here is win football games and win championships.”
