“It’s been fun and fulfilling!!” 

Those are the words of veteran NFL running back LeGarrette Blount who announced his retirement Saturday morning. 

Blount, who last played in 2018, took to Instagram to say he’s ready to hang it up.

“I just want to inform y’all that I’m officially retiring,” Blount wrote. “I have thought long and hard about this decision, and I’ve talked to my closest family members and friends about this. We collectively agreed on this decision. It is in the best interest of me and my family.”

In the heartfelt post, attached to a three minute video, Blount thanked the NFL teams he played for. 

“Now everyone can stop asking ‘are you done?’”

He’s done. 

Blount played in 132 games, tallying 6306 yards and 56 touchdowns across six teams-- the Titans, Buccaneers, Patriots, Steelers, Eagles and Lions. 


While the former Oregon Duck may not have had a Hall of Fame career, he certainly was part of some great team success.

The 34-year-old won two Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots and one with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Happy retirement, LeGarrette!
