Via Scott Smith of buccaneers.com,
“The Buccaneers signed Fournette on September 8, 2020, one week after he had been released by the Jacksonville Jaguars and just five days before the start of the regular season. He had spent three seasons in Jacksonville after arriving as the fourth-overall pick in the 2017 draft. Fournette later signed additional contracts with Tampa Bay following the 2020 and 2021 campaigns.”
Fournette leaves the Bucs not only with a Super Bowl ring, but arguably the coolest nickname ever “Playoff Lenny”.
