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.
