The Facts: The Jaguars have had trade discussions with other teams regarding Fournette, league sources tell ESPN. Fournette is due $4.16 million in base salary in 2020. It's a situation that bears watching as this week's draft approaches.
Diehards Line:As Profootballtalk.com notes, 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.
