Eagles ink two-time Super Bowl champion rusher Blount

Two-time Super Bowl champion LeGarrette Blount, whose rushing helped the New England Patriots win last season's NFL crown, agreed to a one-year deal Wednesday with the Philadelphia Eagles. The 30-year-old running back, who reportedly signed for $2.8 million (2.5 million euros), comes off the best campaign of his seven-year NFL career, having run 299 times for 1,161 yards and a league-high 18 touchdowns for the Patriots last season — two more than the entire Eagles team managed. "LeGarrette Blount is a tough, physical runner who has enjoyed a great deal of success in New England and we are excited about adding him to this football team," Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said.
