Looks like the Marshawn Lynch rumblings made their way to LeGarrette Blount.
Not long after it was reported by the Boston Herald that Lynch would be interested in playing for the Patriots should talks fall through with the Raiders, Blount took to Twitter to post a photo of himself and Malcolm Butler with curious caption.
"We gon ball regardless," Blount wrote, "ya feel me." Blount apparently deleted the tweet soon thereafter.
The message, though short-lived online, was an obvious one. Both Blount and Butler are unsigned at the moment, although Butler has a first-round tender he can sign that will pay him $3.91 million for 2017. There's no guarantee that either spends the 2017 season in New England.
Blount has long said that he hopes to remain with the Patriots. According to our Mike Giardi, there's an offer waiting for him in New England, but it's not one he's been moved to sign.
The 6-foot, 250-pounder turned 30 in December but is coming off of a career year in which he racked up a franchise record 18 rushing touchdowns and set a career-high with 1,161 yards rushing.
Remember when Brandin Cooks rode Rob Gronkowski around like a horse to celebrate a Patriots touchdown back in November?
Well, Gronk doing Gronk things in Miami managed to find about the only person he could ride.
Shaquille O'Neal, at 7-foot-1, gave 6-7 Gronk a ride on his shoulders as they celebrated the debut of "Shaq's Fun House" as part of the three-day Ultra Music Festival in Miami.
So, who won the dance-off?
Patriots safety Duron Harmon has returned to the U.S. after he was reportedly temporarily detained when he tried to enter Costa Rica with 58 grams of marijuana.
The Costa Rica Star reports that Harmon, 27, was traveling from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and was temporarily detained Friday night in Costa Rica with the marijuana inside a can of Arizona ice tea, along with three pipes with cannabis oil, THC candy and four glass containers with compressed marijuana weighing a total of 4.3 grams.
"We are aware of the situation involving Duron Harmon Friday night in Costa Rica," the Patriots said in a statement. "He has since returned to the U.S. and we are seeking to gain more information. At this time, we have no further update."
Harmon, who has been with the Patriots his entire five-year NFL career, had four interceptions and 23 tackles last season.
