Running back LeGarrette Blount has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Globe has confirmed.
Blount had 772 yards on 153 carries last season for the Patriots, and turned in a record-setting day in a playoff game against the Colts in January. His four rushing touchdowns set a team mark, and his 166 yards tied the team record.
He also had a big game in the Patriots’ regular-season finale with 189 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns in a 34-20 victory over the Bills.
The Patriots acquired Blount in a trade with the Buccaneers before the 2013 season.
