Jacksonville Jaguars Daily: Leonard Fournette only rookie to sign contract with no offset language

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Leonard Fournette Press Conference Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie Leonard Fournette only one to sign a contract that avoids offset language -
The numbers are trickling in regarding the contracts signed by the players selected three weeks ago in the draft. In the top 10, half have signed their deals. Only one has avoided the oft-contentious offset language. The Jaguars gave running back Leonard Fournette, the fourth pick in round one, a fully-guaranteed contract with no offset language.

Myles Jack agrees he wasn’t given enough snaps and played out of position as a rookie -
BREAKING: We take a Twitter like and blow it way out of proportion.

Leonard Fournette work will likely include more shotgun rushes -
The biggest adjustment for Jaguars tailback Leonard Fournette this year will be getting carries out the shotgun formation and not regularly having a fullback leading the way. We looked at two of his biggest games from 2016 – vs. Wisconsin in Green Bay (23 carries for 138 yards) and vs. Mississippi (16 carries for 284 yards) – to see how often Fournette received a carry after the shotgun snap and how often he had a lead blocker.
