Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette is under fire for refusing to run where he should on a football field, which is reminding NFL Twitter of another former first-round draft bust at the position in Trent Richardson.

Fournette was already under fire for dropping no fewer than three passes from quarterback Tom Brady during the Buccaneers’ 27-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on "Monday Night Football," and this bit of news certainly won’t help his cause for more playing time, or for being in the good graces of Tampa Bay fans.

NFL to use all-Black officiating crew for first time ever on Monday night for Rams-Bucs game

  NFL to use all-Black officiating crew for first time ever on Monday night for Rams-Bucs game An all-Black officiating crew will work an NFL game for the first time when the Buccaneers host the Rams meet in Week 11 on "Monday Night Football."The seven-man unit will be headed by referee Jerome Boger, a former Morehouse College quarterback who refereed Super Bowl XLVII and is in his 17th year as a league official.

Running back Leonard Fournette agreed to join the team, he confirmed Wednesday on Twitter , just two days after he was waived by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Fournette becomes the latest marquee figure to join the Buccaneers ' backfield in an offseason shaped by quarterback Tom Brady's arrival.

7⃣ Leonard Fournette ‏Подлинная учетная запись @_ fournette 25 сент. 2015 г. Thank you guys for paving the way for us running backs to this day GOATSpic. twitter .com/54wQjlc7q6.

Here’s the initial short video clip of Fournette’s film of apparent issues on the gridiron from Pro Football Focus analyst Zoltan Bunday:

That’s pretty ugly. It appears as though Fournette could’ve gotten far more yards on that carry had he followed his blocks properly. Unfortunately, this isn’t a one-off incident, but rather a discouraging trend that should have Bucs fans worried about whether they can complement aging quarterback Tom Brady with a decent rushing attack.

Here’s another cringe-inducing Fournette footage frame, courtesy of NFL analyst Jon Ledyard:

Fournette is unfortunately on a similar career arc to Richardson, who began promisingly enough in Cleveland with 11 rushing touchdowns as a rookie. However, he played in just two games the following season before being traded to Indianapolis for a first-round pick. After a woefully unproductive stint with the Colts, Richardson never touched the ball in a regular-season game again.

In the case of Fournette, he went fourth overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2017 and was a key contributor on that year’s team that reached the AFC Championship Game. Alas, he unceremoniously forced his way out of Jacksonville, and after all the drops Fournette had as a pass-catcher on Monday night, it’s becoming clearer that he’s not a valuable receiving threat out of the backfield like Richardson at least was for a short time.

Here’s some more “greatest hits” from the Twitterverse regarding the unflattering comparisons Fournette is drawing — and it’s probably not lifting Richardson’s spirits much, wherever he is these days.

Broncos sending game ball from win over Dolphins to team great entering hospice

  Broncos sending game ball from win over Dolphins to team great entering hospice Broncos coach Vic Fangio said Denver would be sending a game ball from its victory over Miami to team legend Floyd Little, who is entering hospice.The Denver Broncos, who Little played his entire career for (1967-1975), halted the red-hot Miami Dolphins' winning streak Sunday with a 20-13 victory. Afterwards, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said the team would honor one of the franchise's original stars by sending Little and his family a game ball.

VISION /PATIENCE: 8.5 - Finds first hole and hits it decisively - Able to adjust on the move to find the crease - Shows some feel for setting up blockers - Really nice feel for back side pursuit in open field - Could stand to wait for blocking to set up - Sometimes will take closest hole vs. best hole available.

The Buccaneers are not expected to make a trade for Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette , a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Michael DiRocco explains how the Jaguars attempting to trade Leonard Fournette propels the team into a full rebuild.

While Ronald Jones clearly looms as the featured back in Tampa Bay, any help Brady and the offense can get from Fournette would be welcomed with open arms. Veteran LeSean McCoy is more of a pass-catching specialist at the position, but until he’s available to play, it’ll be up to Fournette to pick up the slack.

Although he is capable of picking up blitzes in pass protection, Fournette is miscast as a third-down back at the moment. He’s the type of runner who needs to get into a rhythm with multiple carries. The way the Bucs are built on offense with so many weapons in the passing game like Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski and others, though, it’s unlikely coach Bruce Arians will deploy a seismic shift in offensive philosophy.

Will Cam Newton's race become an issue in Boston if the Patriots don't win?

  Will Cam Newton's race become an issue in Boston if the Patriots don't win? If Cam Newton’s tenure in New England falters, will Patriots fans see Newton as solely a failed quarterback, or a failed Black quarterback?Newton may not be thinking about it, but others are, and the question goes like this: If Newton’s tenure in New England falters, will Patriots fans see Newton as solely a failed quarterback, or because of Boston’s historically ugly racial dynamics, will he be viewed as a failed Black quarterback?

But something has to change in Tampa Bay. Whether it’s Arians scaling back on downfield passing and catering more to Brady’s strength of short, precision-based throws, or simply pounding the rock more often with some blend of Jones and Fournette, the Bucs are fighting for playoff position at 7-4 entering Week 12.

Is Fournette a potential answer as he continues to be integrated into this Tampa Bay offense, which is being built on the fly with many moving parts and frequent lineup changes? Or is he destined to end up as an unmitigated draft bust like Richardson at a position that, frankly, is the most replaceable of any in the NFL?

Bring on the fiery Fournette fodder. It just adds another juicy, buzz-worthy subplot to this chaotic Bucs team as they try to figure out their chemistry well enough in time for a deep playoff run and potential Super Bowl push.

Raiders' Trent Brown set to return to practice

  Raiders' Trent Brown set to return to practice Trent Brown has played just 73 offensive snaps in his second Raiders season, but the Pro Bowl right tackle may be on the verge of suiting up again. The sixth-year blocker is set to resuming practicing next week, Vic Tafur of The Athletic tweets. An injury initially sidelined Brown, but coronavirus complications have shelved the mammoth offensive lineman for the past several weeks.Brown, whose positive COVID-19 test led to the rest of the Raiders starting O-line missing a full week of practice in Week 7, was on the verge of returning from his bout with the virus in Week 8 against the Browns.

Fantasy football waiver wire: Shore up playoff roster with Texans' Keke Coutee .
As fantasy's regular season winds down, keep one eye focused on winning in Week 13 and another eye on the upcoming playoffs. Your browser does not support this video © Tim Fuller, USA TODAY Sports Keke Coutee played only five snaps during the first 10 weeks of the season, but could be an important part of the Texans' passing game down the stretch. A general piece of advice: Try to secure the primary backup for your top players. (A couple of them are mentioned here, in fact.) Any injuries during the fantasy playoffs can be killer.
