Run it back? Leonard Fournette discusses potential return to Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Former LSU RB Leonard Fournette played a huge role for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in their 31-9 Super Bowl win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, running for 89 yards, putting up 46 yards as a receiver and scoring a touchdown.
However, he was only in Tampa for 1 year on his current contract, so he enters the offseason with questions about his future.
Would he like to run it back with the Bucs? He said during an appearance on ESPN that he’d love to return to Tampa, but he doesn’t know what will happen (via Pro Football Talk):
“We’ll see,” he said. “Right now, I’m just enjoying the process right now with this W with this organization and my team. You never know what the future holds for me right now, you know? I wound up ending on a great note. I’d love to be back. We’ll have to talk to my agent and see what they’re talking about.”
Fournette’s former team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, finished with the worst record in the NFL this past season and now have the No. 1 pick. Meanwhile, Fournette picked up a Super Bowl ring.
We’re sure he’s fine with the way this all played out for him in 2020. Now, we’ll see where the former LSU star ends up next.
