Jacksonville Jaguars Waive Running Back Leonard Fournette!
According to reports, the Jacksonville Jaguars have been a very busy team over the past year or so getting rid of players that were on the team that were important to them getting to the AFC Title game just a few seasons ago.
Yes, the Jaguars have just waived running back Leonard Fournette. Read on…
CelebNSports247.com reports on Monday, another domino fell as the Jacksonville Jaguars reportedly released running back Leonard Fournette from the roster.
We guess the Jaguars forgot back 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.
But what does that matter, right?
