How the Eagles could get LeGarrette Blount back

The Eagles, who are in need of a running back, could really use Lions running back LeGarrette Blount again. Despite his low yards/carry stat, Blount demonstrates competent blocking and leadership skills.

With Lions quarterback Matthews Stafford catching up to his age, a QB acquisition by the Lions wouldn’t be the dumbest thing.

With the likeliness of Eagles QB Nick Foles leaving, the Eagles could either franchise tag him or exercise his $20 million option for next season, then trade him for an asset – Blount.

Here’s what the trade could look like…

Lions receive: QB Nick Foles
Eagles receive: RB LeGarrette Blount

I wouldn’t call this likely, but knowing the NFL, you truly do never know what isn’t likely of happening.

If he comes back to Philly, make sure your 18 year old daughters are under lock and key because he will come looking for them

???????????? Did you just say you’d trade Foles for Blount?? Okay… AND???? There’s no way on earth I’d want the eagles to trade for a 32 year old RB who avg’d about 2-3 yards per carry this year for a SB MVP. Sorry.

I mean, I love LeGarrette Blount and would love for the eagles to get him back, but not for that deal. You’d have to give up a 1st round pick also or something.
