At the end of a rough season in Jacksonville, it became increasingly apparent the relationship between the team and running back Leonard Fournette had become fractious. A few days ago, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone confirmed the Jaguars have acted to void guarantees within Fournette's rookie contract following the latest in a series of troubling incidents.
Naturally, these events have fuelled speculation that the Jaguars will look to sever ties with Fournette with Jay Glazer recently reporting they might be looking to blow up their roster. With the Jets expected to target Le'Veon Bell in the offseason, some have suggested that Fournette could be a lower-cost alternative, or at least a viable fall-back plan, as they look to upgrade their running back position. However, there are reasons to believe the Jets should look elsewhere.
