The Facts: The Jaguars will have to make a decision whether to pick up Fournette’s fifth-year option, which is $10.1 million. According to Times-Union staffer John Reid, "They should bypass the option because of their limited cap space and evaluate what he does in 2020 before considering an extension."
Diehards Line: Reid went on to suggest if Fournette can put forth back-to-back 1,000 yard rushing seasons, he would increase his value and the Jaguars would have a good trade asset or a dependable performer if they decide to extend him. If not, they should make a trade to acquire a veteran running back. ... Another situation worth watching heading into free agency.
