Blount spent last season with the Patriots before signing a two-year contract with the Steelers.

Analysis: The Steelers signed Blount to a two-year deal in the offseason hoping he would provide some muscle near the goal line. He rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown in a Week 3 win over Carolina but saw his playing time diminish in recent games. Blount also ran into trouble off the field. He was cited for marijuana possession during a traffic stop in August.
