Report: Three-time Super Bowl-winning RB LeGarrette Blount works out for Raiders – Yardbarker

The Raiders worked out running backs LeGarrette Blount and Bo Scarbrough today, according to Field Yates of (Twitter link). Blount hasn’t been heard from this season and hasn’t had any known visits or workouts with NFL clubs. That’s perhaps to be expected after the veteran back struggled through a 2018 campaign with the Lions in which he managed 2.7 yards per carry on 154 attempts.  Now 32 years old, Blount has nearly 1,500 carries through nine pro seasons. He has 6,306 yards and 56 TDs, averaging 4.2 yards per carry for his career and is a three-time Super Bowl winner.  It’s unclear if Oakland is seriously considering a Blount addition or merely updating its emergency free-agent list. First-round pick Josh Jacobs has thrived in his rookie season, and the Raiders also have Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington on the roster. Scarbrough, a seventh-round pick of the Cowboys in 2018, has also spent time with the Jaguars and Seahawks. He’s yet to post an NFL carry.
