Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Didn't participate in spring practices
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount (hip) didn't participate in any of the Patriots' spring practices, ESPN.com reports.

Blount's status will thus be worth monitoring as training camp approaches, but in the absence of any setbacks with his hip, we'd expect him to move toward the end of reclaiming the Patriots' "big back" role this coming season. Barring any additional moves by the team to address the running back position, Blount's primary competition for the role should come from Joey Iosefa and Tyler Gaffney. Meanwhile, Donald Brown, James White, Brandon Bolden and undrafted rookie D.J. Foster figure to jostle for slotting on the team's depth chart, with the only secure spot on that front belonging to Dion Lewis, who will serve as the team's top pass-catching back, provided he fully recovers from the knee injury that ended his 2015 season early.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Returns to New England backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeGarrette Blount has signed a one-year deal to remain with the New England Patriots , NFL.com reports.

The 29-year-old Blount, who landed on IR last December after suffering a chipped bone in his hip, is said to be back to 100 percent, so the 6-foot, 250-pounder will now look to reprise his role as the Patriots' top power back. While the terms of his deal with the team have not been made public, given that Blount lasted this long in free agency suggests that a team-friendly deal is in play here. When he was on the field in 2015, Blount logged 165 carries for 703 yards and six TDs over a 12 game span. His experience and level of success in the New England offense makes this a low-risk reunion, though the likes of Dion Lewis, James White, Donald Brown and Brandon Bolden remain in the mix for touches in the team's backfield. Moreover, it wouldn't surprise us to see the team land another running back option at or after the NFL draft later this month.

LeGarrette Blount: Returns to health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeGarrette Blount , who landed on IR this past season after suffering a chipped bone in his hip, is said to be back to 100 percent, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The report notes that Blount -- who did not require offseason surgery -- is slated to be good to go for OTAs, though at this time he remains unsigned. Given that the Patriots have yet to add running back depth in free agency, it's possible that he could return to New England in his role as a "big back" for the team, but for such a reunion to occur, Blount may have to settle for modest contract terms.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: In contract talks to remain with Patriots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeGarrette Blount (hip) and the New England Patriots have reportedly displayed mutual interest in a new contract for the running back, who is eligible to become a free agent on March 9, the Boston Herald reports.

Per the report, negotiations on that front "are still in the infant stages," but it appears as though Blount could re-up with the Patriots if the price is right. Meanwhile, the hip injury that landed Blount on IR in December didn't require surgery, which suggests that the 29-year-old has a good chance to be healed up by the time his 2016 team takes the field again. In 12 games with New England this past season, Blount carried 165 times for 703 yards, with six TDs, while adding six catches for 43 yards and a receiving score. In advance of free agency, fellow running backs Dion Lewis, Brandon Bolden, James White, Joey Iosefa and Tyler Gaffney are under contract with the Patriots for 2016, but bringing back Blount, who has enjoyed success with the team in his role as a "big back," would provide the New England backfield with valuable stability and experience.

Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Avoided hip surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

LeGarrette Blount didn't need surgery on the hip injury that ended his 2015 campaign, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

The New England Patriots ' backfield endured hits during the season, as Dion Lewis (knee) preceded Blount's placement on injured reserve on Dec. 16. Despite missing the final three games of the regular season, Blount was far and away the team's leading rusher, totaling 165 carries for 703 yards (4.3 YPC) and six touchdowns. The Patriots must make a call on the unrestricted free agent in the coming months, but if he sticks around, he'll likely serve as the No. 1 back until Lewis has recovered from a torn ACL, barring other additions to the roster.
