Steelers visit with LeGarrette Blount put off until Friday

NFP and Baltimore Sun writer Aaron Wilson reports the meeting was rescheduled until after the owners meetings.

National Football Post and Baltimore Sun writer Aaron Wilson is reporting Saturday the Steelers and free agent running back LeGarrette Blount won't meet until after the owner's meetings conclude. The meeting will occur Friday, according to Wilson.

With both Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin attending the meetings, the first time they'd both be available to meet with him would be Friday, wrote Wilson. Whether that means Blount will not speak with other teams, or is planning to visit with the Steelers only if no other team schedules something with him remains to be seen.

That certainly is a valid reason, but it's also something they would have known when they scheduled the initial meeting. It's curious if there are other deals at work, based on the gathering of all the owners in the league, and, apparently, at least some head coaches and general managers.

This isn't to suggest a trade is on the horizon, but Blount is said to be gaining interest from the Baltimore Ravens as well and the Patriots have expressed interest in re-signing him. The team must be interested in him enough to not just schedule the meeting but want to ensure all their decision-makers are on hand to visit with him. That's simply impossible during the week due to other obligations.
