Mike Giardi talks with Trenni Kusnierek and Gary Tanguay about Bill Belichick’s possible offseason moves.
According to CSN's Mike Giardi, the Patriots have an offer on the table for free agent running back LeGarrette Blount.
Can confirm there is an offer on the table for Blount from the Patriots. They would like a return. He would like a return. $$ matters— Michael Giardi (@MikeGiardi) April 7, 2017
Blount, 30, signed a one-year deal with the Patriots after his 2015 season ended early after a hip injury. He bounced back in 2016 with career-highs in attempts (299) yards (1,161) and touchowns (18).
Dion Lewis, James White, Rex Burkhead, Brandon Bolden and DJ Foster currently make up the Patriots depth chart at running back.
Mike Giardi and Jerod Mayo talk about the potential of a Patriots reunion with Darrelle Revis. Mayo thinks if he is motivated, he can still play, but that's a big IF in Jerod's mind. Plus, is Revis a sure fire Hall of Famer?
Giardi and Mayo also discuss Cyrus Jones, who had a rough rookie year for the Patriots. Jerod thinks he could make a major leap in his second season and play a huge role.
On Malcolm Butler, Mayo has one piece of advice - stop being so emotional! He talks about how Butler has no leverage as a restricted free-agent, and the Patriots are in the right. Mayo stresses to Butler that insurance can offset any fears for playing for what he believes his market value is.
Giardi goes 1-on-1 with Saints reporter Nick Underhill about the latest rumors from the owner's meetings regarding Malcolm Butler, and how his acquisition could prevent Drew Brees from considering going to a title contender when his contract is up in 2018.
