Leonard Fournette on the Move??

this is a discussion within the NFL Community Forum; Twitter Crazy to think, but the Jags might be looking to move on from Fournette already. And no, we shouldn’t trade for him. We have no draft picks....

Sounds like he just needs a change in scenery. It does not sound like the Fournette we know from LSU.

Also something's a little fishy in Jacksonville. What a total collapse from last year.

If anything, I feel like this helps our chances of retaining Ingram. The more talented RB’s on the market the better.

Re: Leonard Fournette on the Move??

Even if we did have the picks i wouldnt anyways. He couldnt play a full season at lsu except once and was always banged up and in the pros hasnt played anything remotely close to a full season. Major red flag

He was at LSU for 3 years, and didn't miss a game until his junior year. I kept seeing this kind of misinformation posted before he was drafted and pointing this out. I see people are still saying the same things. He still put up over 100 yards per game and averaged over 6.5 yards per carry, that year, despite never being 100%. I thought that was a pretty good sign of durability.

In the pros, it doesn't seem his conditioning has been well managed. Some guys get their money, and their love of the game disappears. I hope that's not the case for him, as he was a good kid at LSU. But, who knows.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Suspended twice, seldom on the field and they had more success with him not in the game which, they should. Running over 20 times a game what did they think teams were going to do.

Redskins, Philly would be good fits if they reserve him mostly for GL work. Pats did that with Blount. Worked great.

What he should do is get back in the shape he was before the ankle injuries in 2016, and then he'll be something. Dude was built like a linebacker, running a 4.4, and making smooth cuts.

Maybe he should play in the new league for a year and try to regain his form.

Re: Leonard Fournette on the Move??

Teddy Bridgewater plus Ingram for Fournette. He has good hands and is possibly the best physical athlete in the NFL. Similar body to Adrian Peterson. I have a suspicion that Sean Peyton could find a couple plays to utilize his skill set. Actually though Dwayne Washington intrigues me. 6"1 230, 4.4 40 fastest RB on thw roster and being a former WR he's a good route runner with good hands.
