Patriots get LeGarrette Blount in deal for Jeff Demps

FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots were involved in a trade on Saturday, sending Jeff Demps and a seventh-round pick to Tampa Bay in exchange for running back LeGarrette Blount.

A returner/running back, Demps was a sought-after rookie free agent last summer, returning to football after spending eight months away from the game while training for the 2012 Summer Olympics. He was a member of the silver-medal winning 4 x 100 relay team for the United States.
