Four­nette sheds gumbo to fat­ten bank

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE - Com­piled by Frankie Frisco

Sorry, Mom. No more gumbo. Leonard Four­nette ar­rived at train­ing camp and quickly learned of a new rule gov­ern­ing his weight: The Jaguars can fine him $630 per pound over their tar­get for him.

That tar­get was 231 pounds. He was at 235.

“I heard about it when I got in,” Four­nette said. “I gotta take this se­ri­ous.”

He has since eased up on his mom’s gumbo, is now 7 pounds un­der the tar­get weight and well be­low what he played at for LSU.

“Shout out to my mom,” said Four­nette, who chose to wear No. 27 here be­cause he al­ways has to have a seven in his num­ber. “I need all my money.”

Four­nette ran with the sec­ond team to start his first train­ing camp Thurs­day, but there are big plans for him in Jack­sonville as Coach Doug Mar­rone has said he would pre­fer not throw­ing the ball and would like to run it ev­ery play.
