The New England Patriots have made a big deal in re-signing Runningback LeGarrette Blount just two days after he was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Blount was released by the Steelers under controversial circumstances but it didn't take long for him to return to his former team.

Upon Blount's return to Massachusetts there was one Patriots player in particular who was happy to welcome him back.

Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady - who is well known for his activity on social media took to Facebook to officially show his pleasure that Blount has returned.

Brady has put up a video of the two high-fiving during a game against the Steelers to the social media site.


Put together with the song "welcome back, kotter" over the top, Brady uploads the video in his typical style.

Despite being one of the greatest Quarterbacks to ever play the game, Brady embraces his joke of being a somewhat goofy looking man.

Uploading a video with him looking at his goofiest, Brady is once again showing his pleasure at having one of his old offensive weapons back.

More than just football?

Brady is very happy to have Blount back with the team, but is it for more than just football?

Brady is fairly well known for his high-five videos but more specifically, the videos where he walks round looking for acknowledgement off his team-mates and not getting it.

That particular video (seen below) has gained a lot of views from NFL fans and led to Brady receiving many high-fives from fans who saw the star.

Brady is sure glad that Blount is back and even if it is just so that he can get a high five on the touchline.

Beware Jonas Gray

We all know about Jonas Gray, the Patriots Runningback who was signed to the active roster last months and then shocked the league on Sunday?

He entered the Patriots game against the Indianapolis Colts having never scored a career touchdown.

With that stat, he then became the first player since 1921 to score four rushing touchdowns in a single game having never previously scored one.

But with the return of the man who single handedly defeated the Colts in last years play-offs, what does this mean for Gray?

Blount also rushed for four touchdowns in last years AFC divisional round against the Colts so the big question now is, will Blount replace Gray on Sunday against the Detroit Lions?

Despite what happens with the Patriots over the rest of the season one thing is clear, the Colts had best hope they don't see the Patriots rush offence again.

Brady just can't get a high-five
