Bucs re-sign Leonard Fournette to three-year, $21 million deal


Fournette’s decision comes just one day after visiting with the New England Patriots.

The 27-year-old just completed his second season with Tampa Bay, a campaign in which he posted 180 rushing attempts for 812 yards and eight rushing touchdowns, while adding 69 receptions for 454 receiving yards and two scores in the air. Fournette’s 4.5 yards per carry and 5.1 yards per touch were new career highs, and his 10 total touchdowns tied his previous best, set in his rookie season in 2017.

Fournette missed the team’s final three regular season games and their wildcard round contest with a hamstring injury, but returned for the divisional round loss to the Los Angeles Rams. where he recorded 13 carries for 51 yards and two touchdowns and added nine receptions on nine targets for 56 yards. The former Jacksonville Jaguar earned the nickname “Playoff Lenny” after his four-game streak in the Bucs’ Super Bowl LV title run, where he recorded 64 rushing attempts for 300 yards and three touchdowns and had added 18 catches for 148 receiving yards and a score too.
