VIDEO: Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette Decleated

Published

on

Welcome to the National Football League Leonard Fournette.

During his storied career at LSU, the bruising running back made a name for himself for his punishing trucking of defenders.

It won’t be as easy to do that in the National Football League and the Jacksonville Jaguars running back experienced this reality first hand during practice on Friday.

The welcoming committee? Defensive tackle Sheldon Day.

Forunette has made an impression in camp, despite being on the receiving end of that brutal hit.

Former Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has this to say:

“I got a chance to break him down during the draft process,” Jones-Drew said, via the Florida Times-Union.

“My concerns were the Jags offensive line creating seams for him – he’s not a guy that’s going to create holes [himself]. He’s not a LeSean McCoy or Le’Veon Bell [type of runner], who are shifty. He’s more of a downhill, one-cut runner and you need creases for that.

While the Denver Broncos will be in the market for a backup quarterback, team president John Elway shut the door on the possibility that the team would entertain signing free agent signal caller Colin Kaepernick, although it has nothing to do with protests.

Elway spoke to reporters on Thursday and officially nixed the idea of the team bringing in the former San Francisco 49ers start quarterback.

“He had a chance to be here, he passed on it,” Elway said, according to USA Today’s Lindsay Jones.

Elway is referring to a nixed deal the the Broncos and 49ers had in place that would have seen Kaepernick in Denver back in 2016, but Kaepernick killed the deal by refusing to trim $5 million from his cap number and take additional pay cuts down the road.
