Leonard Fournette receives praise from Jaguars' head coach, teammates

"Obviously he's shown that ability, but at the same sense, when you have the team, the one thing about a team is you have to earn that", Marrone said.

Branden Albert was the opposite of a headache during his three seasons with the Dolphins, but he's causing some angst in Jacksonville.

"I think of everything", Marrone said of the possible explanations for Albert's silence. The 6-foot, 228-pounder averaged 6.2 yards per carry and 19.3 carries per game in his career, and his physical running style is a ideal match for the ball-control offense the Jaguars want to run in 2017. And words from rookies, of course, only go so far to shaping National Football League seasons.

Concluding his comments on the matter, Turnbull said that "in due course, any announcements will be made formally through the transport minister".


T.J. Yeldon and Chris Ivory have the potential to siphon carries and could limit Fournette's ceiling in fantasy production if this were to happen. "My role right now is going out there and competing and getting better right now". "I know T.J., I know Chris".

"He was able to do the drills and the thing that I look for is how quickly he can respond to (running backs) coach Tyrone Wheatley and (offensive coordinator) Nathaniel Hackett when they do the drills and he's picking them up, which I thought he did a nice job of". "I'm just coming in and just working".

I think that with the addition of Fournette, the Jaguars will be able to open up the playbook more and he will be able to take pressure off of Blake Bortles. Robinson was an absolute steal in 2015 when he posted 1400 yards and 14 touchdowns but tapered off in 2016 to just 883 yards and six touchdowns. The Jaguars signed Ivory to a five-year, $32 million contract with $10 million guaranteed in March 2016, but he missed five games with injuries, ran for just 439 yards and averaged a career-low 3.8 yards per carry last season.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng index added 0.9 percent to 25,371.59 and the Shanghai Composite index rose 0.2 percent to 3,090.23. US stocks were poised for a similarly flat opening with Dow futures and the broader S&P 500 futures up 0.1 percent.


But if that group can flash some steady progress in concert with Fournette's arrival, the Jaguars offense could experience something of a renaissance in 2017.

"I know that's something (that) me and Leonard talked about as soon as - I know I talked to him right after the draft", Robinson said. I've been in this situation a lot where players are on a tag ...
