Eagles players are excited to welcome LeGarrette Blount to Philadelphia

NFL: Super Bowl LI-New England Patriots Press Conference Michael Madrid-USA TODAY Sports

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.)

Blount’s introductory press conference is set to take place tomorrow, Thursday, May 18 at 3:00 PM ET.
