Fournette was one of the more productive running backs in the league last season with 1,266 yards from scrimmage. The deal more than doubles Fournette’s salary from 2021 but is still isn’t enough to put Fournette in the top-ten of running back salaries. So a solid raise for Fournette and great value for the Buccaneers.
#Bucs are re-signing RB Leonard Fournette to 3 year, $21 million deal. Could earn as much as $24 million. Tom Brady has his RB1 back again.
