LeGarrette Blount says Ray Lewis gave him permission to do his dance


As if it wasn’t bad enough to be on the wrong end of a blowout for the Baltimore Ravens in Week 16, they had to watch New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount mock them by doing Ray Lewis‘ famed dance.

But Blount says he didn’t pull the dance out of his hat, stating that Lewis gave him permission to break out the moves:

“Out of respect for him … I talked to him one of the last times I played him, and I had his phone number still from doing a couple of appearances with him, so I asked him a while ago,” Blount said.

Now, I don’t really think it’s outlandish to assume Lewis gave Blount the ‘okay’ to use his dance, but against his old team? Yeah, that’s difficult to believe.

In fairness to Blount, he didn’t say that he asked him to use it against the Ravens, just that he asked if he could use it – a while ago. Pretty sure if the former Ravens linebacker knew Blount was going to bust it out against his former team, let alone with a playoff birth on the line, he’d have objected.
