The Jacksonville Jaguars reportedly called the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Day 2 of the 2020 NFL Draft to try and deal running back Leonard Fournette, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Fournette ran for a career-high 1,152 yards and caught a team-high 76 passes last season but he only scored three touchdowns. He was ineffective in the red zone, but you could argue he wasn’t used correctly near the goal line. His 1,674 yards from scrimmage ranked sixth in the NFL in 2019.

After missing 11 games in his first two seasons, Fournette started every game last year except for the season finale.
