Maybe LeGarrette Blount isn’t delusional, after all.
With the Bucs using a first-round pick on Doug Martin and plenty of smoke to suggest that Blount could be getting fired, the third-year pro from Oregon has punched his way to the top of the team’s initial depth chart, according to JoeBucsFan.com.
Martin is the backup and Mossis Madu is third.
Undrafted in 2010 and cut by the Titans, Blount became a pleasant surprise as a rookie for the Buccaneers, gaining more than 1,000 in only 13 games with seven starts.
Last season, Blount rushed for only 781 yards, 54 0f which came on what arguably was the best run of the year.
At a position like tailback, everything is subject to change. So far, however, new Bucs coach Greg Schiano apparently likes what he has seen from Blount more than what he likes what he has seen from Martin.
