As reported on Wednesday night, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed Leonard Fournette ahead of the 2020 season. This transaction comes days after his release from the Jacksonville Jaguars. The deal is reportedly a one-year contract worth roughly $3.5 million.

Prior to the signing, the depth chart at the running back position for Tampa Bay included the likes of Ronald Jones, LeSean McCoy, Ke’Shawn Vaughn, and Dare Ogunbowale.
Fournette, 25, totaled 1,152 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns last season across 15 games for the Jaguars. His release came as a surprise, but he should be viewed as an upgrade in the Buccaneers backfield.
