LeGarrette Blount, the newest member of the Patriots, took to Twitter earlier this evening to thank the Steelers. “I would like to thank the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, Mr Rooney, Kevin Colbert, Coach Tomlin and Coach Sax for the opportunity and experience they provided me. I would also like to apologize to them and my teammates and fans for how things ended. I made a poor decision that I will definitely grow from. I wish the Steelers, my former teammates and Steeler Nation nothing but the best,” Blount wrote.
- Adam Schefter of ESPN.com revisited the draft day blockbuster between the Browns and Falcons that sent the No. 6 pick (Julio Jones) to Atlanta. The Browns have many regrets for their part in the trade. The Browns turned that selection into defensive tackle Phil Taylor, wide receiver Greg Little, fullback Owen Marecic, and quarterback Brandon Weeden. The deal also gave them an extra fourth-round pick which they used to deal for Trent Richardson. Needless to say, Cleveland would probably like a re-do.
- Titans linebacker Avery Williamson, taken in the fifth round of this year’s draft, is looking like an absolute steal, writes The Associated Press. Williamson has seen a ton of playing time for Tennessee this year and earlier this week he sacked Ben Roethlisberger twice.
- Adam Schefter of ESPN.com believes that the Broncos won’t let Demaryius Thomas get away in free agency. Tight end Julius Thomas is also a priority, but perhaps not as high up on the list.
