Veteran RB LeGarrette Blount Retiring From NFL


Veteran RB LeGarrette Blount announced via his Instagram account on Saturday that he’s retiring from the NFL. 


Blount, 34, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon back in 2010. He was unable to make the Titans’ 53-man roster during his rookie season but was later claimed off of waivers by the Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay elected to trade Blount to the Patriots in return for Jeff Demps and a late-round pick after three years. Blount had a brief stint with the Steelers before he was cut loose during the 2013 season and later returned to the Patriots.

Blount spent the 2017 season with the Eagles and joined the Lions on a one-year deal the following year. He last played for the Lions in 2018. 

For his career, Blount appeared in 132 games and rushed for 6,306 yards on 1,495 carries (4.2 YPC) to go along with 64 receptions for 454 yards receiving and 56 total touchdowns over the course of nine seasons.
