The Jacksonville Jaguars will go down as one of the biggest what-if stories in the recent history of the NFL. After reaching the AFC Championship on the back of their elite defense back during the 2017-18 season, and narrowly losing to the New England Patriots, the team has never been the same. The Jaguars have suffered back-to-back seasons of missing the playoffs, and finished last year a dismal 6-10.
Now the team is in a full blow up of their once impenetrable defense. Jalen Ramsey was traded mid-season, Yannick Ngakoue has no interest in returning, and now A.J. Bouye is being shipped off to the Denver Broncos. Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was drafted by the Jaguars back in 2017, and has now seen a championship-caliber team dismantled in front of his eyes. The former LSU man couldn't hide his disappointment anymore, and shared his thoughts on Twitter.
It was an effective way for Fournette to get his point across, without even having to say a word. These guys aren't robots, and for someone like Fournette, who was one game away from the Super Bowl, to now face the possibility that his team is tanking, is a difficult pill to swallow.
It's just yet another reason for Jaguars fans to have legitimate issues with the team's front office. With no head coaching change after two disastrous seasons, and the team swarmed in relocation talks, it is a difficult time to be a fan, yet again.
