RB LeGarrette Blount changes mind; headed to Tennessee Titans

So much for the excitement that Blount was bringing. Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount has changed his mind and will not be signing with the 49ers. Apparently after thinking it over, Blount has instead decided to join the Tennessee Titans. Such is life.

One reason we were using "reported" earlier is because the 49ers had not yet sent out a press release announcing the signing. Now we see why. Although it's certainly disappointing to lose out on him, I still think Anthony Dixon can perform in the type of role we might have hoped for in Blount. Dixon weighs approximately 7 pounds less than Blount, so it's not a huge difference. Additionally, NFL teams can certainly work to get the right kind of weight potentially added on to a player. Disappointing as it might be, we can still anticipate a training camp battle between Anthoyn Dixon and Glen Coffee.
