Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports Blount will make the veteran minimum this season. The veteran back passed through waivers on Wednesday, allowing the Pats to sign him at a lower rate.
It's such a savvy, Belichickian move to add a piece late in the season for the veteran minimum. The bruising back could come in handy as the weather dips in Foxboro down the stretch of the season. At the very least, the Pats got cheap labor that has shown success in their system.
