    Blount: Down to Detroit or NYG?

    I don't know how reliable this is, but according to this article and a Detroit Sports Writer, it's down to the the Lions or Giants for Blount.
    "The Detroit Lions and New York Giants, both in desperate need of help in their backfields, are the two teams left vying for the Patriots lead rusher in the 2016 season."

    After drafting a RB Gallman you would think that they would not persue Blount. But not according to this posted 15 minutes ago

    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

    I guess maybe because Gallman is only 6'1 and 210 and Blount is about the same height and 245

    I think it comes down to having a veteran presence on the team for those critical moments.

    Gallman is a rookie who never played in the NFL, Blont is a proven commodity I think that is why.

    Yes as it stands now the only vet would be Vereen and he can't stay healthy and is not an every down back

    I'm not eager for the Giants to sign him. I think he's a function of the NE system and won't be worth much outside of it.

    I also think he's a bit of a fumbler and that isn't attractive in RBs.

    Last season 337 touches (299 rushing, 38 receiving) only 2 fumbles , 5 in the past 5 seasons. Those stats are not bad.

    He's fumbled 8 times in the last 5 years.

    I think he would be a good addition.
