Off the Record (OTR)

Fournette is signed

The Jacksonville Jaguars won’t have to worry about their top draft pick holding out of training camp. They just signed LSU running back Leonard Fournette to a four-year deal with the standard fifty-year option that all first rounders get.

It says the deal is fully guaranteed and contains no offset language. This report definitely came from the agent.

I believe there is no offset language, but this contract is not fully guaranteed. Usually it’s “fully guaranteed” if you’re on the roster at certain points.

Head coach Doug Marrone said Fournette will have to “compete” for the starting job, but we know better. He wasn’t drafted because they loved the 1-2 punch of Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon. Fournette will start if healthy.
