Four­nette a free agent

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS -

Run­ning back Leonard Four­nette is now a free agent af­ter go­ing un­claimed af­ter the Jaguars waived him Mon­day.

Four­nette’s rep­re­sen­ta­tives re­sponded by for­mally fil­ing a griev­ance against the Jaguars in an ef­fort to re­coup the $4.17 mil­lion in base salary he ini­tially was guar­an­teed for this sea­son.

The Jaguars voided all re­main­ing guar­an­tees in Four­nette’s rookie deal late in 2018. They took the ac­tion af­ter Four­nette’s onegame sus­pen­sion for fight­ing with Bills line­backer Shaq Law­son in Novem­ber 2018.

Four­nette, the fourth over­all pick in the 2017 draft, ran for 1,152 yards and had 522 yards re­ceiv­ing last sea­son, but the Jaguars said he had drawn lit­tle to no in­ter­est on the trade mar­ket.

Lions OT Decker gets con­tract ex­ten­sion

The agent for Lions of­fen­sive tackle Tay­lor Decker said his client agreed to a six-year, $85 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion that in­cludes $37.5 mil­lion guar­an­teed.

Decker joined the Lions as a first-round draft pick out of Ohio State in 2016 and be­came their first rookie of­fen­sive tackle to start all 16 games since 2001. Af­ter an in­jury-plagued 2017 sea­son, he started 31 of 32 games the last two sea­sons.

This and that

The Raiders put re­ceiver Tyrell Wil­liams on sea­son-end­ing in­jured re­serve with a torn labrum in his right shoul­der. He was hurt in practice last month and ini­tially was go­ing to try to play through it be­fore de­cid­ing to have surgery.

Rams line­backer Travin Howard, a pro­jected starter, will miss the up­com­ing sea­son af­ter tear­ing the menis­cus in his left knee. Coach Sean McVay said Howard will need surgery to re­pair the in­jury.

The Browns said start­ing line­backer Mack Wil­son won’t need surgery for his hy­per­ex­tended left knee and is ex­pected to play some­time this sea­son.
