New England unloads former Florida RB Jeff Demps and a 7th round pick to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for RB LeGarrette Blount.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have traded running back LeGarrette Blount to the New England Patriots in exchange for a seventh-round pick in this year's NFL draft and Olympic sprinter Jeff Demps.

Demps was a silver medalist as part of the 4x100 relay team that finished second to Jamaica at the 2012 London Games. The former Florida running back was not selected in last year's draft because he told teams he wanted to focus on his track career.

The Patriots signed Demps last August.

Blount was a 1,000-yard as a rookie with the Bucs after going undrafted in 2010. He led Tampa Bay in rushing again with 781 yards the following year, but lost his starting job after Doug Martin joined the team as a first-round draft pick in 2012.
