Leonard Fournette is all set to join Buccaneers. Though he won’t be traveling far to join his next NFL squad deal. On Wednesday evening, Tampa Bay also have agreed on a deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. According to the reports, Fournette who rushed 666 times for 2,631 yards (4.0 YPC) and 17 touchdowns in his three-year career was recently waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars following disputes within the organization. He realized that Jaguar is the newest much-ballyhooed Buccaneer. This deal is signed for one year with a maximum value of $3.5 million and a $2 million base salary plus incentives, these incentives and salary are based on rushing yards and playing times.
Jacksonville Jaguars had tweeted an image of him, in which he was wearing a Bucs jersey and helmet carrying a football in his hand. Along with the image he posted a massage i.e. #GOBucs. He posted all this on Wednesday night on his social media handle. After all this, The Bucs still have no comment on the confirmation of the payer acquisitions until the team has a signed contract.
Leonard Fournette: 1,674 total yards, 4.9 yards per touch. Ronald Jones II: 1,033 total yards, 5.1 yards per touch. Chris Godwin: 86 receptions, 1,333 yards, 9 TDs. Mike Evans: 67 receptions, 1,157 yards, 8 TDs. Rob Gronkowski: 47 receptions, 682 yards, 3 TDs (2018 stats). O.J. Howard: 34 receptions, 459 yards, 1 TD.
Tampa Bay is still not able to outsource all of its opponents. A skill-position group consists of the above players; it is just preposterous.
“We couldn’t get anything. A fifth, a sixth-anything,” Marrone told reporters on a Zoom call on Monday morning.
According to the reports “At the end of the day, I want to win” Fournette told ESPN.com recently. “Who doesn’t want to win? I came from the 2017 season with a team who was 10-6, we had a good level of talent and then the next couple of years went down the drain. So I just want to address a lot of things, too, especially since the media came out and said I was an angry guy.”
Leonard words for Jacksonville on his way out
“We have been through some ups and downs but y’all have had my back through it all. You have my deepest respect and appreciation,” he tweeted, adding his thanks for the organization. “I would like to thank the Jaguars organization for giving me the opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream of playing in the NFL. To all my brothers in the locker room from 2017 until today, y’all are family for life. I wish each of you the absolute best in your careers. I am excited about what will come next for myself. Wherever that may be, know that you will get a player who is focused, motivated, and ready to get to work.”
