Tom Brady Comments On Blount’s Super Bowl Rings Picture

NFL

LeGarrette Blount has had himself something of a personal dynasty over the last few years.

The running back has been a part of Super Bowl winning teams three of the last four years. Two titles have come with the Patriots, while the latest came at the hands of his former New England squad while he was with the Eagles for Super Bowl LII.

Philly recently received their rings for that title and Blount then took to his social media channels to post the trio of championship rings, showing off the pretty epic run he’s been on. His Patriots Super Bowl rings are on the left (Super Bowl XLIX) and right (Super Bowl LI), while his latest Eagles ring is dead in the middle.

“Blessings,” Blount simply captioned the photo.

After posting the same photo to his Instagram page, Blount received some congratulations from his former quarterback in Tom Brady.

“You have EARNED them my brother!” Brady captioned.

Blount responded, “I appreciate that bro.”

Blount was with the Patriots for three and a half seasons. He first came to the team back in 2013 where he rushed for 772 yards and seven touchdowns. After that year, he initially left for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but eventually found his way back to Foxboro in the midst of the 2014, just in time for New England’s run to Super Bowl XLIX.

His final season with the Patriots was by far his best. The back ran for an franchise record and league leading 18 touchdowns to go along with a career high 1,161 yards rushing. He also was a part of the Patriots’ epic 25 point comeback against the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, his final game with the Patriots.

It was after that game where he shared a strong moment with Brady and Bill Belichick on the field where he called both of them the greatest of all time.

Following that career year with New England, Blount signed on with the Eagles where he was able to take down the Patriots in Super Bowl LII for his third title.

Now, Blount has kept his Patriots roots strong by signing with the Detroit Lions, who are now led by former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.

“My relationship with Matt has always been a great one,” Blount told the Detroit Free Press back in March. “Anytime I ever saw him in any part of the building, whether it’s just walking by in the hallway or the cafeteria, at practice, whatever, whatever the circumstance may be, anytime that you walk past or every time we’re around each other it’s always laughs and jokes. Obviously we get serious when it’s time to do the job, but for the most part we laugh, we joke, we clown around. And we enjoy each other and it got to the point to where we had gotten really close.”

With Detroit, he’ll look to compete for the lead back role and line up alongside Matthew Stafford, while also trying to keep up his winning ways.
