NFL Rumors: Arizona Cardinals Interested in RB LeGarrette Blount
The Arizona Cardinals are hurting at running back. The season-ending injury to Ryan Williams and IR placement of Beanie Wells put a hole in the position. Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB LeGarrette Blount could be the answer. Blount has a 1,000 yard season under his belt and his value is way down at the moment because of his disappointing start to this season. The Cardinals should be interested in the bruising running back and they can get him for cheap.
The deal would be a low risk, high reward situation. The Cardinals should be able to get him for nothing higher than a fourth round pick–I’m guessing somewhere around five–but it’s obvious that his time on the Buccaneers is over. The 247 pound running back would keep opposing defenses honest and allow more time to pass in the pocket for QB John Skelton.
Blount would be a force in the back field for the Cardinals. I am a fan of LaRod Stephens-Howling, but “the hyphen” will not be able to handle the grind like a big back can. He will still get more touches than he normally would, but bringing in a guy like Blount is the best thing the Cardinals can do. They need to release Alfonso Smith and make the deal happen sooner rather than later. An opportunity like this could be compared to Marshawn Lynch being traded to the Seattle Seahawks–and we all know how that turned out.
The Cardinals will be at the halfway point in the season by the end of their game tonight against the San Francisco 49ers. A trade like this could change their fortunes for the rest of the season.
