The Facts: Fournette's time in Jacksonville appeared to be nearing a possible end last month, but now that April showers have brought May flowers, everything is dandy in Duval. Fournette is expected by the Jaguars to be on the team in 2020, GM Dave Caldwell told ProFootballTalk on Monday during an appearance on the site's podcast. "To be honest with you, there were just some minor discussions with that but nothing substantial throughout the draft or prior to the draft," Caldwell said. "I think the mindset is that we're going to go forward with Leonard on the team. I had a good talk with him on Friday. I know (HC Doug) Marrone has had some discussion with him. He seems to be in great shape and mental frame of mind, and we feel that he'll have a great season this year."
Diehards Line: Fournette's offseason has been intriguing. The running back racked up 1,152 yards on 265 carries and also enjoyed a breakout year in the passing-catching department, hauling in 76 receptions for 522 yards. Jacksonville finished with six wins, including a 38-20 thrashing of Indianapolis in a meaningless Week 17 finale -- a game in which Fournette did not play. Strangely enough, 2019 was Fournette's best season as a pro and he heads into 2020 in the final year of his contract after the Jags declined his fifth-year option.
