When former Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount punched a Boise State player in the face after a Thursday night game last year, the football-watching world was introduced to the fact that Blount has an issue with controlling his emotions.
When Blount punched a teammate on Wednesday, we were reminded of that fact.
Along the way, a new story has emerged of a two-year-old punching incident. Shoved hard by two teammates (including Bills safety Jairus Byrd), Blount reacted — and a scrum broke out.
And Blount eventually threw a punch.
CFT has the details as to what happened next. (And so you can either complain that we’re trying to drive a little traffic to our college football affiliate, or you can just click the damn link.)
As Titans coach Jeff Fisher pointed out on Wednesday, players throwing punches in practice isn’t necessarily a big deal. If the guy can’t control himself when being watched by men with yellow flags, it’s a far different issue.
As to Blount, we’ll see whether he can control himself, if he makes it onto the Titans’ 53-man roster. It’s safe to say that, if Blount become an official, regular-season Titan, opponents will add to their scouting report on Blount a notation to say very nasty things about his mother.
