Blount blows off Pro Day

We tend to not get too worked up about Pro Day workouts, the touring, off-Broadway version of the Underwear Olympics.

But while it’s difficult for a guy to do anything to dramatically improve his stock via a Pro Day workout, a guy can screw himself up by, for example, not showing up.

Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount, whose career was derailed by a 10-game suspension imposed after he punched a guy following the first game of the 2009 season, blew off his Pro Day workout, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

As Brandt points out, Blount’s decision not to work out “likely will prompt more questions.”

UPDATE:  Blount’s agent says that the player never intended to show up for today’s Pro Day workout, and that he’ll be there for the March 18 session.

    Did Blount blow off pro day to smoke a Blunt?

    loser

    The title of this blog post is also a good description of what he’ll be doing to make ends meet once he flames out of the NFL.

    really!?!?! is anybody in this world surprised??

  7. Paulitik says: Mar 11, 2010 7:39 PM

    From what I read (per SI), he was going to work out on the next Ducks Pro-day on the 18th. Another non-controversy twittering away.

    Could this guy be any dumber of a human being? He has one thing he is good at, football. There are no other backup plans.

    Florio, you are the least humorous person on the planet.

  10. Big J says: Mar 11, 2010 7:43 PM

    Ahh, yeah.

  11. nerd says: Mar 11, 2010 7:43 PM

    NOT doing himself any favors. Lawrence Phillips, anyone?

  12. SC21 says: Mar 11, 2010 7:44 PM

    Either he has no brains or he doesn’t like money. Or both.

  13. brownsfn says: Mar 11, 2010 7:45 PM

    DUMB ASS!!!! He’ll be in jail within 2 years…mark my words…

  14. scrapdawg12 says: Mar 11, 2010 7:46 PM

    I won’t jump to conclusions even though it sounds fishy. Maybe he had personal reasons not to show. Sick? Family Matters?

  15. Brown Dawg 1 says: Mar 11, 2010 7:47 PM

    Blount must have been smoking a blunt !!!!!

  16. kazkal says: Mar 11, 2010 7:48 PM

    He didn’t run a slower time so what? guy is going be a late round steal.

  17. last starfighter says: Mar 11, 2010 7:50 PM

    Was Blount hitting a blunt?

  18. JimmySmith says: Mar 11, 2010 7:53 PM

    he was busy sucker punching people who weren’t looking.
    He’s such a punk that its likely the Raiders or Bengals that will draft him.

  19. Jaydub says: Mar 11, 2010 7:56 PM

    With the 8th pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, the Oakland Raiders select…

  20. bigswifty1 says: Mar 11, 2010 7:56 PM

    I think that playing in the NFL is such a priveledge, that I would love to see this scenario as an incentive to ‘behave’: any player that does anything this stupid, or worse, or gets into any sort of legal trouble during his college playing days should be forever ineligible to play pro football and should never be given piles of cash.
    If this guy acted like this in a college game, do they think he’ll change while making millions of dollars per year, thus further provoking his ego to believe he can do whatever the hell he wants?
    These kids should learn that if they don’t straighten up and fly right, they’ll have to find a job and work for a living like the rest of us. I’m sick of hearing about losers like Blount being rewarded with more money than most of us will ever see in our lifetime.
    Unfortunately, I’m sure it won’t ever happen like this because, of course, money is the meaning of life, right?

    He didn’t blow it off. THere are two Oregon pro days. He is scheduled for the second one. This is what happens when there is this rush to write something negative.

  22. Ryan says: Mar 11, 2010 8:03 PM

    Thats a really long comment. This player is a moron and will end up with a pacman-like career. Enough said.

  23. this class sucks says: Mar 11, 2010 8:24 PM

    49ers will take him. He’ll either behave or disappear.

  24. Poo Flinging Monkey says: Mar 11, 2010 8:27 PM

    Hey… am I too late to make a Blunt/Blount joke?

  25. bigswifty1 says: Mar 11, 2010 8:31 PM

    Thanks, Ryan. Such profound insight.

  26. raiders177 says: Mar 11, 2010 8:54 PM

    This is pretty funny, I wonder how many people would still make those comments if they found out he is scheduled to work out on their 2nd pro day.

    Okay, I’m marking your words. I’ll be back in two years then we’ll see… Happy now I’ve marked your words?

    can you say, CFL?
    Lawrence Phillips pt deux

  29. Acrimonious1 says: Mar 11, 2010 10:55 PM

    Such a loser he is for choosing to work out at the 2nd pro day. judgemental morons

    Nice job Florio, that’s a pretty douchey move. Try getting the story right next time.
