Buccaneers Trade RB Legarrette Blount For Patriots RB Jeff Demps, 7th Rd. Pick
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have finally ended the Legarrette Blount saga, trading him to the New England Patriots for track star/return man Jeff Demps and the 278th overall pick in the 2013 NFL draft according to Tom Curran of CSNNE. Blount ran for 1,007 yards as an undrafted rookie in 2010, but fell out of favor with the Buccaneers coaching staff when Greg Schiano came in. He got just 41 carries for 151 yards last year, as the Bucs used Doug Martin to carry the load.
Blount was limited because of his deficiencies on passing downs, as he struggles to produce as a receiver out of the backfield and the coaching staff didn't appear to trust him as a pass blocker. The Bucs did re-sign him to a one-year, $1.25 million contract this offseason but they only did so in lieu of applying a second-round tender so they could trade him.
