Blount released, now a Buccanneer

After rookie LeGarrette Blount was released by the Titans on September 5, the Tampa Bay Buccanneers added the running back to their 53-man roster.

This is good news to some Titans fans.

Most observers will say the Titans made a mistake by assuming Blount would clear waivers after being released. I say the Titans corrected a mistake after signing Blount as an undrafted free agent after the 2010 NFL Draft.

During the draft, it seemed the Titans were making a conscious effort to draft smart players with character. The cumulative outcome of Tennessee’s draft may have been a coincidence, but the Titans made it appear as if they had no intention of adding another Adam “Pacman” Jones-type character to the team.

I thought signing Blount was a step in the wrong direction.

Blount punched defensive end Eric Bakhtiari during training camp, which despite the opinion of many, was a big deal. Now, the Buccanneers will risk their locker room and on-field prospects with Blount.

One thought on “Blount released, now a Buccanneer

    Why is Jeff Fisher pulling Vince Young? Jeff Fisher should be pulled for the lack of creativity out of the offense that keeps the Titans predictable and easy to defend…even the last turnover where he fumbled, why would you leave Chris Johnson in by himself to block an all pro linebacker…Vince should’ve put the ball away, but it was a great defensive play by a great defensive player.

    Fisher should be out if the Titans are going to win against the upper echelon of the NFL…terrible scheme that will win some, but not enough…
