A slimmed-down Leonard Fournette seen at Jaguars’ OTAs
The Jaguars are on the field for Organized Team Activities, and Leonard Fournette is looking to be in good shape.

Michael DiRocco of ESPN posted a picture of Fournette looking like he has lost some weight. Authentic Marcus Cannon Jersey Fournette weighed in at 240 pounds at last year’s Scouting Combine and 228 pounds at LSU’s Pro Day.
Although Fournette topped 1,000 yards as a rookie, he didn’t have a great season. His 3.9 yards per carry was below the league average, as was his first down rate, gaining first downs on just 17 percent of his carries. Fournette missed three games and the Jaguars went 3-0 in those games and averaged more rushing yards in the games he missed than in the games he played.
First off, apologies to the Milwaukee Brewers. They beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-2 with three home runs off Zack Greinke and Corey Knebel recorded his first save since March 30. They’re in first place in the NL Central and deserve credit for sitting 10 games over .500 even though their lineup has been extremely mediocre. The bullpen, however, has not, and it’s only strengthened if Knebel resumes the closer role, freeing up Josh Hader for those multi-inning stints as needed.
I think people took some things that I said into a context that I was going to be mean or rude or whatever, and that was not it at all, Roethlisberger said. If you listen to the whole conversation, it was said in jest and laughing and having fun.
Marcel Dionne Limited Jersey I’ve never been the type to just be rude or mean to other quarterbacks. You can ask [Landry] Jones. I’ve had a lot of quarterbacks through here who were younger than me that I’ve tried to help any way that I can, so I’ll continue to do that.
Of course, it’s easy to claim out-of-context now, but immediately after the Steelers chose Rudolph in the third round, Roethlisberger openly wondered why they didn’t take a player who could provide a more immediate benefit (especially after trading wide receiver Martavis Bryant). The rookie initially said he didn’t expect Roethlisberger to mentor him, and has tried to play nice.
Roethlisberger was also very complimentary of Rudolph while offering tips.
