LeGarrette Blount’s signing is a reminder to be patient in free agency

It took some time this off-season, but the Philadelphia Eagles have finally solidified their backfield with the signing of running back LeGarrette Blount. On Wednesday, the Eagles signed the six-foot-one, 250-pound ball carrier to a one year contract that is worth up to $2.8 million. Blount is coming off his best season with the New England Patriots. He led the NFL with 18 rushing touchdowns. He also rushed for a career high 1161 yards in 2016. As you’re well aware, he was a key component in the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory.
