LeGarrette Blount the starter in Tampa, for now

According to Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com, as of right now LaGarrette Blount is still the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting running back and rookie running back Doug Martin has been working with the first time at times.

Martin has been portrayed as more of a complete back then Blount, but so far the rookie has been learning as he’s been sprinkled in at times with the first team offense.

This may not be the year that Blount steps back and is forced to hand over the starting job to Martin.  Head coach Greg Schiano and the Bucs may end up waiting until next year to move Martin up the depth chart.  Or he may end up being a change of pace back for Blount for the next few seasons.
