LeGarrette Blount joins the Eagles on 1-year contract

PHILADELPHIA (AP) LeGarrette Blount is bringing his power running to Philadelphia.

The Eagles and Blount agreed on a one-year contract Wednesday, giving the team a bruising back to complement their group of smaller, speedy runners.

Blount led the NFL with 18 touchdowns rushing in 2016 while helping the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl. He ran for 1,161 yards, averaging 3.6 per carry.
