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.
