LeGarrette Blount to do short-yardage and goal-line work

It is not all too surprising given his size and strength, but LeGarrette Blount was told by the Steelers to expect the role of short yardage and goal-line back. It is a role which Blount has consistently been cast in since he entered the NFL: "They wanted to let me know up front what they wanted me to do and they told me they definitely want me to do short yardage...

The Pittsburgh Steelers added LeGarrette Blount last week to serve as the primary back-up to starter Le’Veon Bell. As if on cue, a chorus of Steelers’ ‘fans’ let loose with celebratory cheers and some even went so far as to say this was the move needed to get us to a seventh Super Bowl title.
