LeGarrette Blount earned a lot praise for his remarkable 54-yard touchdown run on Sunday in Green Bay.
Blount’s biggest compliment might have come post-game from Packers star QB Aaron Rodgers, according to Stephen F. Holder and Joe Smith of the St. Petersburg-Times.
Blount told Rodgers he should win the league MVP.
Rodgers more than returned the favor.
“He told me he thinks I’m one of the best backs in the league,” Blount said Monday. “He told me I have a chance to be one of the greatest backs in this league and he said he doesn’t just say that to anybody. He feels like me and one other guy have the potential to stand out and be two of the best running backs to ever play the game.
“Coming from Aaron Rodgers, it makes me feel amazing.”
