Depth at running back is crucial in the NFL. Blount would have been a great compliment to rookie running back Doug Martin last season but unfortunately did not have much playing time.
Luckily for the Bucs, Martin had a stellar rookie campaign and was named to the Pro Bowl. But for the Bucs to be even more successful, they need Blount to be a good compliment to Martin which was not the case in 2012.
Expect the Bucs to still look for a running back in free agency and perhaps in the draft as well.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, free agent DE Michael Bennett has “probably played his last game for the Bucs.”
Stroud adds that the Buccaneers don’t see Bennett as an $11 million defensive end, which is why they passed on franchising him earlier in the week. Instead, he expects Tampa Bay to move forward with Da’Quan Bowers as their starting defensive...
