According to CSNNE’s Mike Giriardi, the England Patriots would like running back LeGarrette Blount to return in 2017, and an offer has been made.
Can confirm there is an offer on the table for Blount from the Patriots. They would like a return. He would like a return. $$ matters

What’s not reported is how long this offer has been floating around. The fact that Blount is still a free agent says he’s not quite convinced it’s his best deal. If he isn’t scooped up by another team, he’ll join the pretty crowded RB corps of lDion Lewis, James White, DJ Foster, Brandon Bolden, James Develin and newly-signed Rex Burkhead.
