Leonard Fournette joining the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should put them well into the Super Bowl conversation.
Multiple outlets reported Wednesday night that running back Leonard Fournette signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The deal is worth $3.5 million on a one-year deal with incentives, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Fournette was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars Monday after the team attempted to trade him this offseason. He was the Jaguars' first-round pick in 2017 with an up and down experience in Jacksonville. During his three seasons in the NFL, Fournette ran for over 1,000 yards in two of three seasons. Issues...
While the Jaguars releasing Leonard Fournette wasn't a surprise, the team might be on their way to a rough season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars posted on social media Monday morning they released running back Leonard Fournette.
Earlier in the offseason, Jacksonville had declined Fournette's fifth-year option on his contract which showed the beginning of his end there. Adam Schefter reported the Jaguars have been trying to trade Fournette since the spring, but never got the deal they wanted. Jacksonville head coach Doug Marrone commented on the Fournette release saying, "We couldn't get anything, a fifth, a sixth, anything. We couldn't get anything."
The Minnesota Vikings got a great deal from the Jacksonville Jaguars for defensive end Yannick Ngakoue.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the Jaguars traded Yannick Ngakoue to Minnesota for a second and conditional fifth-round pick.
It has been well documented that Ngakoue has been requesting a trade since March. He was franchise tagged by Jacksonville on March 13 despite not wanting to return to the team. Ngakoue got into a Twitter feud with Jaguars co-owner Tony Kahn telling him to "Just trade me."
Ngakoue has dominated since joining Jacksonville as their third-round pick in 2016. He's recorded at least eight sacks in...
The football world is still trying to figure how Cam Newton is still without an NFL team to play on.
Most of the jobs in the NFL are taken, but realistically, about half could be won by Newton. We are in the month of May and it isn't looking so good for the former NFL MVP to land a starting job. It is already being reported that Newton would be open to taking a backup role in the league.
This has to be something Newton was...
Two days after losing Rob Gronkowski in a trade, the Patriots add a pass catcher.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday morning that wide receiver Marqise Lee agreed to a one year deal with New England.
Lee was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier in the week to become a free agent. He is apart of the clean up that Jacksonville is performing on their roster.
Lee spent six seasons with the team having a strong 2016 and 2017 campaign combining for 1,553 yards and six touchdowns. Since then, Lee only played in six combined games in 2018 and 2019 recording...
The Jacksonville Jaguars had a case of the Mondays with multiple news being released involving them. That includes their starting running back Leonard Fournette.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Saturday that Fournette was being mentioned in trade discussions with other NFL teams.
Should Jacksonville want to move on from Fournette, it would be a surprise. The rest of the running backs on the roster only combined for 135 yards rushing. Fournette had two 1,000 yard seasons in three years with Jacksonville. 2019 was his best season in terms of rushing (1,152) and receiving (522) yards.
Where Jacksonville Can Find Fournette's Replacement
It appears Marqise Lee will no longer be with the Duval.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the Jacksonville Jaguars have cut receiver Lee after six seasons.
The move comes as a surprise as Lee has been one of the team's top receivers for the past several seasons. He had a career high 851 yards and three touchdowns in 2016. Knee and shoulder injuries the past two seasons held Lee to just six games and only recording three catches.
The team signed Lee to a four-year extension with the Jaguars back in 2018.
Jacksonville does have receivers that can help the...
With the 2020 NFL Draft right around the corner, teams are putting the final touches on their draft boards. While this draft will be different, being conducted virtually, there's still the same intrigue. Here's a look at some of the AFC South Draft Notes.
Draft Notes: Jacksonville Jaguars
Jacksonville holds 12 picks in 2020, including two firsts (9, 20) and three fourths.
Jags have one winning season (2017) in last 12 years, and there's no end in sight to the rebuild considering the team traded CB A.J. Bouye, DE Calais Campbell and QB Nick Foles to stockpile draft picks.
How We Got Here
Tua Tagovailoa is one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft class. For most of the college football season, Tagovailoa was seen as the most talented prospect on the board. He played quarterback for the Alabama Crimson Tide, putting up sparking numbers and leading the Tide to a National Championship in his tenure.
Tagovailoa injured his hip in mid-November that required season-ending surgery, ending his storied Alabama career. With a devastating injury such as one to the hip, there was talk that Tua's surgery would be career-ending. For everyone's sake,...
There are a lot of rumors that are spread around the grapevine during the NFL Draft process, are all rumors right? No, they aren't, but some are. Here is my take for the latest rumors for the 2020 NFL Draft rumors, Buy or Sell edition.
NFL Draft Rumors No. 1: Justin Jefferson will go at No. 7 to Carolina
Sell: I like Justin Jefferson a lot, but unless a wide receiver's last name is Ruggs III or Lamb, I’m not using a top-10 pick on you. Also, the Panthers spent big money on Robby Anderson this offseason, and already...
