The narrative of Leonard Fournette is as yet holding on to include its next chapter.
Subsequent to being out of nowhere released by the Jaguars on Monday, the 25-year-old running back has cleared waivers and is currently a free operator, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero detailed Tuesday, per an informed source.
It has been a wild 24 hours for Fournette, who was asked to leave for good from Jacksonville in the wake of assembling the best season of his young career in 2019.
Prior in the day, Jags RB coach Terry Robiskie told columnists the 2017 first-round pick’s flight had nothing to do with his creation, and considered it a “blessing” that Fournette had the option to help the club’s different backs all through camp.
Since the cutoff time to claim Fournette has passed, he is allowed to negotiate with any team he picks on the standing of his next deal. A shocking new development for a player who was selected as Jacksonville’s RB1 just a day prior.
