It’s hard to believe that Leonard Fournette is only 28 years old. It just feels as if he has been in the league for 15 years.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made the decision to kick off the 2024 season with a different starting backfield following quarterback Tom Brady’s retirement. The team released Leonard Fournette, who was a key contributor to their Super Bowl LV victory. He stated at the time he “asked after the season to be (released) and they respected my wishes. So no bad blood.”
Now, that he is in the midst of finding his new team, Fournette is having some fun with the process.
The free-agent running back took to social media and posted his free-agent cap that had a number of team logos on it.
The fourth overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars had a rough start to his 2022 season when he showed up overweight to the team’s OTAs and mandatory minicamp last offseason. He would then go on to average 3.5 yards per carry in 2022, the lowest of his Buccaneers career and the second-lowest number in the entire NFL that season.
Now, Fournette is one of many options teams can grab in order to fill out their running back rooms for 2023.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
