LeGarrette Blount Thinks He’s Still the Bucs Top Back

Pro Football Talk reports that Bucs RB LeGarrette Blount seems to still think he’s the top RB on the team, and says that Doug Martin being drafted isn’t going to effect him.

In fact, Blount said, “they” can’t take it away from him at all: Rick Stroud ?of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Blount sees himself as in control of how much he carries the ball.

“Nobody can affect my carries but me,” Blount said. “They drafted [Martin] because we needed him. But at the end of the day, we’re both going to play. But don’t nobody affect my carries but me. Not what he does, not what anybody else does, just how I practice and how fast I get the offense down pat.”

Blount said he lost some weight to get ready for organized team activities, motivated in part by a desire to prove he can carry the load.

“I had the idea they were going to draft another guy,” Blount said. “Them drafting a running back might be what I needed to become an every down back.”
