Now I’m even more convinced that there was some type of conspiracy between Blount and the Patriots to get himself released by the Steelers so that he can be picked up by the Patriots once he cleared waivers. Blount signed with the Patriots on Thursday and after the performance last week by Jonas Gray, rushing for 201 yards and four touchdowns, you’d think Blount would be playing limited snaps for his first game back in the fold. Instead, Gray didn’t see the field at all citing some BS “he overslept and missed team meetings” BS and Blount racked up 78 yards on 12 carries and two touchdowns in the Patriots 34-9 victory over the Detroit Lions. In one of his touchdowns, Blount recreated Steelers WR Antonio Brown’s touchdown dance. Tribute or trolling? Either way I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all.
