After spending the last three seasons in Tampa Bay, Fournette became a free agent after the Bucs released him in March at his request. A native of New Orleans and a star at LSU, Fournette was picked fourth overall in the 2017 NFL draft by the Jaguars. He spent three seasons in Jacksonville, leading the Jags in rushing each year he was on the team, before signing with Tampa Bay.

In Super Bowl LV, Fournette led the Buccaneers in rushing with 89 yards on 16 carries, including one touchdown. He also caught four passes for 46 yards in the championship game, second on the team in receptions behind tight end Rob Gronkowski.
