Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has been the topic of conversation for a few days after the running back reportedly showed up to mandatory minicamp weighing roughly 260 pounds. That’s a noticeable amount more than the 228 pounds he was in 2021, and coaches were “not happy,” according to Rick Stroud.
“Coaches were not happy, and that’s an understatement, when (Fournette) didn’t participate in the OTAs, but then he shows up at the mandatory minicamp weighing damn near 260 [pounds],” Rick Stroud said. “And that’s not a good sign for a guy that you’ve just spent a three-year contract on.”
Fournette heard all the jokes, so he decided to join in on the fun.
On Saturday, Fournette took to Twitter and posted a photoshopped image of himself.
The start of the NFL season is still more than a month and a half away. That means Fournette has time to get in game shape.
In his 14 games this past season, he rushed for 812 yards and eight touchdowns while also catching 69 passes for 454 yards and two scores. His efforts got him a new three-year contract worth $21 million.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
