Patriots working out established veteran running back ahead of camp
The New England Patriots may be close to adding an established player to their running back room – just not the one you might be thinking.
According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Patriots are working out veteran running back Leonard Fournette. The 28-year-old Fournette visited New England as a free agent in 2022, before re-signing with Tampa Bay.
Fournette played 16 games for the Bucs last season, averaging just 3.5 yards a carry. He did, however, make 73 catches, three shy of his career-best mark.
It’s fair to wonder how much Fournette really has left in the tank at this stage of his career. But he could possibly be an asset in the passing game for Mac Jones and offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien.
