Bucs Punch Ticket For LeGarrette BlountSeptember 6th, 2010
That’s the word from Anwar Richardson of the Tampa Tribune as he Twittered the news.
Bucs had signed running back RB LeGarrette Blount and released WR Reggie Brown.
A talented back but with a lot of baggage, Blount is more famously known for sucker-punching a Boise State player after losing to the Broncos last season, and then stupidly challenging Boise State fans to a fight and had to be held back from charging the stands.
Now Joe has zero idea what was said to Blount to make him react the way he did but Blount was clearly provoked as evidenced by Boise State coach Chris Petersen’s reaction to the guy Blount clocked. Joe’s not piling on for punching the guy. It very likely was justified.
What was not justified was how Blount went wilding after the incident. It cost him the majority of his senior season and quite a few bucks in the NFL draft.
