Blount Busy With NFL Modeling DutiesApril 3rd, 2012
Hopefully LeGarrette Blount won’t be seen later today on a catwalk wearing a new Nike Bucs jersey and no pants. (Joe apologizes for the morning visual).
That written, Joe has learned that Blount missed Day 1 of the Greg Schiano offseason yesterday because he’ll be participating in this morning’s Nike-NFL rollout of new game jerseys, as Nike plants its flag on its new deal with the league in New York City. Joe can suspect Blount was summoned, in part, because he’s a former member of Team Nike as an Oregon Duck.
Obviously, this qualifies as an acceptable previous engagement, as Greg Schiano referred to Blount’s absence last night on NFL Network.
What a sigh of relief for Joe, and a swift kick in the groin for all the Blount-bashers in the Bucs fan base.
