Leonard Fournette

Jacksonville had been shopping Fournette back around the draft but didn’t find any takers even for a late-round pick. 

Fournette is now a free agent and able to sign with a team of his choosing. 

Fournette, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2017. He is entering the final year of his four-year, $27.15 million contract that’s fully guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $4.16 million for the 2020 season.

The Jaguars recently declined Fournette’s fifth-year option and later waived him on Monday. 

In 2019, Fournette appeared in 15 games for the Jaguars and rushed for 1,152 yards on 265 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 76 receptions for 522 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.
