Eagles RB LeGarrette Blount feels great at 30 years old

Eagles RB Le Garrette Blount explains why he chose Philadelphia

"We feel good about the depth and competition that we have created at the running back position and we are looking forward to getting the guys out on the field next week for OTAs (Organized Team Activities)". The 6-foot, 250-pounder is a powerful, between-the-tackles runner who led the National Football League with 18 touchdowns while rushing for 1,161 yards for the Patriots last season. They were a really good team before I came. "I've split with guys before, so it doesn't bother me".

It's old news that the Eagles have struggled to run in goal line situations. The Eagles didn't have a great rushing attack last season, and Blount should provide them with a good option to run between the tackles. Blount toted the rock 299 times for the Patriots last season, not including the playoffs.

"I chose this place as a place that I wanted to be", Blount said. "I felt like this was the ideal fit for me".

Among the challenging questions for Blount was how he managed to score all of those touchdowns, a number that usually takes him two or three seasons. In fact, the only players heavier than him on the roster are linemen and tight ends.

That's the Patriot Way, as opposed to the Eagle Way.

San Francisco 49ers strong safety Jimmie Ward (25) pushes New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount (29) out of bounds during the second half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Sunday, Nov. 20, 2016. "They have a culture of their own". The addition of Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee made Blount expendable and their upside and versatility made them greater priorities for the offense.

"I'm the weight I need to be at".

"As a running back, you want to get into a rhythm of the game, see how the defense is playing, what the flow of the game is", Blount said.

With Carson Wentz developing as a young quarterback, the Eagles are doing a nice job surrounding him with some weapons. "I have to figure out that part before they label me with anything". "Obviously, he's one of the better quarterbacks of his draft class and generation". "He has the potential to be a really special player". He has all the tools that are needed, and all the grind that is needed, and he has the mindset to maximize his ability if he just continues to work hard.
