Blount Is a Patriot Again

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Running back LeGarrette Blount is a New England Patriot again.

After being cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday, Blount signed with the Patriots Thursday, the team he played for last season.

ESPN reports the deal is for two years, is worth the veteran's minimum, and comes with incentives.

The 27-year-old Blount was released by the Steelers the day after he left the field -- before the team's Monday night game versus the Titans ended. Reportedly Blount was mad because he didn't receive any carries in the game. He then went unclaimed on waivers.

Blount played a big role in the Patriots making the AFC Championship game last season. He ran for 166 yards and four touchdowns in the team's AFC Divisional playoff win over the Indianapolis Colts.

Blount has played in 10 games this season rushing for 266 yards on 65 carries and two touchdowns.

The Patriots released defensive lineman Casey Walker to open up a roster spot for Blount.
