Pats fans; can you pronounce LeGarrette Blount?

Posted: Updated:
You’ve heard his name and seen his jersey a lot in the past few weeks, but do you know how to pronounce LeGarrette Blount’s last name?

Some people say it like count, others don’t pronounce the “o” and say it like punt.

“I don’t know” and “I’m not sure” were common responses when asking fans around Patriot Place.

Even Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has found a way around pronouncing the running back’s last name.

“We call him LG, make it easy there,” Belichick said.

The confusion comes from the spelling, B-L-O-U-N-T, some fans try to pronounce the “o” in the middle.

So what does Blount have to say about the pronunciation of his name?

“I can see where it’s confusing but the “o” is silent,” he said.
