Buccaneers’ Fournette Trolls Media About His Weight


Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ running back Leonard Fournette was at the center of a report by Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times in regards to showing up to mini-camp overweight.

Fournette signed a three-year deal earlier this offseason, but according to the Stroud report he showed up weighing nearly 260 pounds. Fournette dismissed the report and has subsequently posted videos of him working out.

In an effort to poke fun at the media reports Fournette tweeted the following picture.

Well played sir, well played! Kudos to Fournette for taking the high road instead of going another direction. Was the report fair by Stroud? Absolutely, he reported what he was told. Was Fournette justified in dismissing it? Absolutely, and he did so the right way!
