LeGarrette Montez Blount (born December 5, 1986) is an American football running back for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the National Football League. He was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Blount rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of his two seasons in junior college. He then committed to the Oregon Ducks football program as a junior, for the 2008 season. That year he ran for over 1,000 yards and scored a school record 17 touchdowns. After the opening game of the 2009 season, Blount was suspended for punching an opponent and angrily confronting fans immediately after the nationally televised season-opening loss. Though the suspension was announced to be for the remainder of the season, due to his meeting of specific criteria set by the football staff, he was eventually reinstated after missing ten games. Blount was born December 5, 1986 in Madison, Florida, to Gary and Barbara Blount.
