LeGarrette Blount Reportedly Signs 1-Year, $4.5 Million Contract with Lions

It was reported on Wednesday night that the Lions were nearing a deal with Gore, but that was before they met with Blount on Friday. The 31-year old running back has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million deal in Detroit, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Blount spent the bulk of his career with the Patroits, helping them win two Super Bowls during his near four-year tenure.

LeGarrette Blount didn't sign with the Eagles for months into free agency previous year, coming to Philadelphia when the market for him around the National Football League didn't quite reach the level he had hoped after a career season with the New England Patriots.

Will continue to "fully cooperate" with Robert Mueller: White House
The White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration would continue to "fully cooperate" with US. The first is whether Trump or his campaign worked with the Kremlin to tilt the 2016 election in Trump's favour.

The Patriots ran through the schedule during the back half of the campaign, though the postseason run came to an end with a Super Bowl loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Meanwhile, Blount is coming off a season which saw him average 4.4 yards per carry on 173 rushes with the Eagles. The moves reunites Blount with current Lions coach and former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia. That's a hefty price for any running back, and even more so for Blount.

Her fellow AI judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie , also had a good chuckle about the " Swish Swish " songstress' onscreen snafu. Luke has been waiting for someone like William, and Katy enjoyed it so much, she hands William his ticket with her feet.

He's also durable; in the last five seasons, he's only missed three games due to injury.

Blount also gives the Lions veteran experience in a running back room in which Ameer Abdullah had been the team's lead running back. Formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, Burkhead signed with the team during last year's free agency period and posted over 500 yards from scrimmage and eight total touchdowns.
