Position: Running Back
Uniform number: 29
How acquired: trade with Tampa Bay in April
Camp outlook: After rushing for almost 1,800 yards in his first two seasons with Tampa Bay, Blount cooled off considerably in 2012, rushing for just 151 yards in 13 games with the Buccaneers. The Patriots traded Jeff Demps and a seventh-round draft pick to Tampa Bay for Blount in April.
The former Oregon Duck is well-known for punching an opponent in the head following an Oregon loss in 2009 and receiving a season-ending suspension, though he was reinstated to the team after missing 10 games.
Blount will be looking to make the squad as the third-string running back behind Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen, competing with second-year running back Brandon Bolden.
