Jaguars have had trade discussions about Leonard Fournette

Jaguars coach Doug Marrone discusses his close friendship with Texans coach Bill O'Brien and explains how they are able to stay close despite coaching in the same division.

Leonard Fournette may be on the way out of Jacksonville.

The Jaguars have had trade discussions with other teams about Fournette, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

It seems unlikely that Jacksonville would get much for Fournette, who has a $4.16 million base salary this season. Fournette did have his best season last year, with 1,152 rushing yards and 522 receiving yards, but running backs just aren’t valued very highly in today’s NFL.

The Jaguars, however, may take whatever they can get. Starting with last season’s Jalen Ramsey trade and continuing this offseason, they’ve prioritized acquiring draft picks over keeping veterans on their roster, and trading Fournette would be another step in their rebuilding effort.
