The Jaguars turned down Leonard Furnet’s fifth year of the season and decided they didn’t want a fourth year.
According to Michael Diroko of ESPN.com, the Jaguars are releasing the former first round.
Fournet was not only the fourth overall pick in 2017, but he was four places ahead of Christian McCaffrey, who signed a four-year contract extension for $ 64 million with the Panthers this off-season.
Furnet lost 1,152 yards last year in 15 games last year, so he needs to get opportunities (although the Jaguars weren’t able to trade him).
After all, this is another sad chapter for the team, which has gathered talent, but continues to throw it at a fast pace and has not turned any of these good players into a permanent victory.
