Pittsburgh Steelers: LeGarrette Blount, RB

LeGarrette Blount was famous before he made it to the NFL for the wrong reasons. In 2009 while with Oregon, he sucker-punched Byron Hout after the game, and if that wasn’t enough, he then fought teammate Garrett Embry who was trying to stop the fight.

That’s the main reason he went undrafted and his temper didn’t stop at the collegiate level. Blount originally signed with the Tennessee Titans but was waived before the regular season and claimed by Tampa Bay. Despite not being on the 53-man roster, he still found himself in trouble when he fought teammate Eric Bakhtiari in camp.

Blount still turned his career around and was a strong force for the New England Patriots in 2013, 2015, and 2016. But in 2014, he had left New England and signed a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh steelers. He ended up appearing in just 11 games with 266 yards — but he did manage to get arrested for marijuana possession along with fellow running back Le’Veon Bell.

After his failed time in New England, he continued to excel for the Pats and even had 18 touchdowns at the age of 30 in 2016. He even put up 766 yards the following season for the Philadelphia Eagles and finished his career in 2018 with 418 yards and five touchdowns for Detroit.

So basically, Blount found success with every team outside of the Steelers. Needless to say, fans don’t want to remember that quick, but failed, stint.
