Over the past few days, the trade chatter surrounding Jacksonville Jaguars running back has started to intensify.
This past season, Fournette had his best year statistically with 1,152 rushing yards on 265 carries, and found the end zone just three times in 15 games played. He also registered a career-high 76 receptions for 522 yards.
However, things have not gone so smoothly for Fournette since his rookie year, where he rushed for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns and was one of the top rookies of 2017. He missed half of the 2018 season due to injury, and has reportedly frustrated some people in the Jacksonville organization with his lack of work ethic and maturity.
Fournette is on the fourth year of his rookie deal in the league, with the Jaguars having until May 4 to make up their mind on whether or not to exercise the fifth-year option on his deal. He is currently scheduled to make $4.167 million in base salary this season, and will have a cap hit of $8,638 million.
Behind the Bills in the betting odds to land Fournette includes their AFC East rival Miami Dolphins (+400), followed by the Detroit Lions (+600), Pittsburgh Steelers (+750) and the Indianapolis Colts (+900) rounding out the top-five list.
