Buccaneers Greg Schiano puts LeGarrette Blount on notice

Quote:
Greg Schiano is trying to put his stamp on the Buccaneers and heís starting by telling the teamís starting running back that heís got to do a better job of holding onto the ball.

Speaking at the owners meetings on Wednesday, Schiano said that LeGarrette Blount will either stop fumbling or stop playing. Blount fumbled five times while running for 781 yards last season, a number thatís too high for a role in Schianoís offense.

ďI think LeGarrette has tons of ability,Ē Schiano said, via Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com. ďNo one who touches the football will get touches if they donít protect the football. That is one of our core covenants ó the ball. Itís so important they named the game after it. We make a big deal about it.Ē

The only problem with that threat is that the Buccaneers donít have any other options at tailback outside of Mossis Madu at the moment. Kregg Lumpkin signed with Seattle and Earnest Graham is a free agent coming off a torn Achilles, which leaves the Bucs with Maduís 15 carries of experience behind Blount.

A solution might come in free agency or it might come in the draft. The Bucs have been linked with Alabama running back Trent Richardson more than once and his arrival might make it hard for Blount to get carries even if he starts taking better care of the ball.
