Playoff Lenny Heads Back To Bucs

Leonard Fournette is re-signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a three-year, $21 million deal, ESPN reports.

The running back’s deal includes $11 million guaranteed and could reach $24 million with incentives.

ESPN reports that Fournette ranked sixth among all NFL running backs with 1,266 yards from scrimmage, averaging a career-best 4.5 yards per carry, when the Bucs placed him on injured reserve with a hamstring injury after Week 15.

He missed the wild-card game and returned for the Bucs’ divisional-round loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

He was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars but was cut by ahead of the 2020 season — he then landed in Tampa.

Fournette has 3,810 rushing yards with 31 rushing touchdowns and 239 receptions for 1,696 yards and four TD catches in 63 career regular-season games.
