    With training camps winding down and the start of the 2020 NFL season fast approaching, teams are looking to pare down to their final 53-man rosters. That will mean perhaps some surprise cuts in the next few days.

    The Jacksonville Jaguars kicked things off with a bit of a shocker to start the week:

    This move comes as a bit of a surprise, given that Fournette is coming off a career-high season. Last year he rushed for 1,152 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 4.3 yards per attempt, also a career-high. With the Jaguars moving on from almost their entire 2017 defensive lineup, which put them within a half of the Super Bowl, and looking at second-year quarterback Gardner Minshew as their starter in 2020, you might think that Fournette would be a critical component of their plans.

    According to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network, this move is part of coach Doug Marrone’s effort to improve the roster:
