He also has an interesting take on the New Orleans Saintsâ "bounty" scandal, saying recently that he wouldn't mind having a bounty put on him.
"I wouldnât be mad about it," Blount told Yahoo! Sports. "It is nice to know someone cares enough about you to put a hit out on you â¦
"Iâm pretty sure there are a lot more teams that have done it, but unfortunately they are the ones that got caught. I donât have a problem with it; it is what it is. I donât have a problem because I donât know if they had a bounty out on me or not. I donât know if Iâm that big or important enough as a player. Since Iâve been in the league it hasnât affected me any."
Blount led Tampa Bay in rushing the past two seasons, gaining 1,007 yards as a rookie in 2010 and finishing with 781 yards and five touchdowns last year.
Blount -- along with receiver Preston Parker -- has also signed an exclusive-rights tender offer from the Buccaneers. The third-year pros will earn about $540,000 next season. Parker had 40 catches for 554 yards and three touchdowns in 2011.
