Jacksonville’s Jaguars rejected another player with a big name.
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network said Jags had refused to return Leonard Fournet, according to a source informed of the decision.
The team later confirmed the move.
The former No. 4 overall candidate in 2017 was chosen to be the central element of Jags’ vision of the ground and the pound, as former Vice President Tom Coughlin saw. While Fournette had good census statistics, its effectiveness never matched the status of a project.
His tenure in Jacksonville was rocky, from management meetings to ineffective play. In 2018, the team stopped running for one game after a fight with Bills defender Shaq Lawson.
Earlier, the Jags turned down the opportunity for Fournette’s fifth year. He had to make a $ 4.167 million basic salary. He was rejected after being cut off by Jacksonville.
