    LeGareete Blount?

    Blount is on the trading block. He's 26 and didn't get used much last year, and a former 1000 yard rusher. He has a style Fisher would probably like.

    I'd guess he could be had for a 4th rounder at most, and he doesn't make much.

    Worthy of a look?

    Hmmm I might consider Blount if this was posted in the correct Forum Section of Draft & FA...

    I remember when he last played against us he was the second coming of Earl Campbell.
    Let the hype begin.

    If I remember correctly doesn't he have fumbling issues?

    And punching issues. I think one of his biggest problems was smart issues, in that he basically never learned how to pick up a blitz. As a result, even though he was an effective runner, the Bucs stopped using him because he just couldn't protect the QB when the blitz came.

    Didn't Fisher release Blount while he was in Tennessee. Which is how he ended up in Tampa to start with. Anyone know if he was released or traded. I can't remember.

    If I remember correctly he cannot block or catch worth a darn so I'd probably pass.

    Yes, Fisher did release Blount in Tennessee. He then went on to sign with Tampa.

    Wouldn't go higher than a 6th round pick for him.

    We still need depth but his ability to get some hard running done can't be ignored. I'd throw a 7th for him, but would probably just wait for him to be released. There's a number of backs I'd rather have before him, like Brandon Jacobs. He got a full year's rest and recovery and now hates the Whiners, plus he fills a need for a 3rd and inches power back.

    SF signing him has been the best part of the off season
