I wouldn't be surprised. Disappointed, but not surprised. Will be interesting to see what happens now.

Hurts my team #1, especially with also losing guice but atleast I have armstead there and Thompson elsewhere.

Have to think Jax brings someone else in and fournette gets a prove it deal somewhere. Maybe somewhere like Washington or Denver. Though I guess it will depend why he was released.

After the Ngakoue trade, not surprised. Trade Minshew before people realize they are tanking for Trevor.

Washington?
Chicago?

Doesn't seem to be a lot of RB needy teams right now, but he'll surely find a role.

Philly or Washington would set the Dynasty world on fire.....Chicago would be more "meh". Out of the frying pan, into the fire, for Fournette, too.

Wow. I didn't expect this.

Why release your RB prior to the season starting? They also traded Ngakoue.

This is crazy news considering it's so close to the season.

Tanking for Trevor. Really messes up the team, without actually "tanking", per se. They are gutting this team and planning to get picks, including the first overall, to rebuild. They see a generational type QB, and they are going for it, IMO. The last 2 days was a huge shot at Minshew's long term outlook.

Tanking in the NFL... I think I've seen this before and it almost never works out. I think it was the Bengals a few years ago who came out of no where to lose their first 11 games or something? Nobody saw that coming.

I don't know who's running the show in Jacksonville, but I have to question the decision making. I wonder what the Jaguars subreddit is saying. BRB.

I mean it could also be a case of a disgruntled player causing problems in the locker room and mouthing his way out of town. Surprising that if that was the case Jax didn't get a trade for him done but he said no trade without a new deal or something like that

They're tanking for Lawrence or Fields. Plus, I'm sure it was mutual since he wanted out.

I think he’s a third down back and this doesn’t change his role at all.
