Usually a free agent signing at this time of year wouldn’t draw much interest. The type of guys who typically get signed around this year are just camp bodies. But that’s not the case with LeGarrette Blount, whom the Eagles inked to a one-year contract on Wednesday.
A number of Eagles players reached out to Blount on Twitter to welcome him to Philadelphia. As you can see, the team is excited about adding him to the roster. They know the Eagles are getting a legitimate running back.
(Jordan Matthews retweeted Wentz’s tweet above.)
