As of Sunday night Black Landry Jones Jerseys , the expectation within the league office was that Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette would not be suspended. Between Sunday night and Monday night, that changed. on Fournette in response to his decision to both leave the bench area on Sunday and fight with Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson.NFL V.P. of football operations Jon Runyan issued the suspension under the two rules that Fournette violated — the rule against unsportsmanlike conduct, and the unnecessary roughness rules, which prohibits throwing a punch at an opponent. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, others in the league office saw it differently, but it’s Runyan’s job to make the final determination.鈥淪portsmanship is the cornerstone of the game and the League will not tolerate game-related misconduct that conveys a lack of respect for the game itself and those involved in it,” Runyan wrote in the letter to Fournette. “Video of the incident shows that you were not a participant in the play and that you ran from your sideline to the opposite side of the field to insert yourself as an active participant in a fight. Once you entered the fight area, you struck a member of the opposing team. Your actions adversely reflected on the NFL and have no place in the game.鈥滷ournette will have the right to appeal the suspension within three business days. The hearing Landry Jones Jerseys 2019 , if there’s an appeal, will be conducted by Derrick Brooks or James Thrash.Fournette undoubtedly will appeal, especially if his contract contains language invalidating the remainder of the guarantees under his rookie deal in the event of a suspension. If such language is in the contract (remember the Roquan Smith controversy?), then more than $7 million in guarantees becomes wiped out, allowing the Jaguars to release Fournette after the season with no further financial obligation.Any other discipline arising from the incident, which resulted in the ejections of Fournette and Lawson, will be handled in the form of fines.

The Jaguars were expected to bolster their pass rush at some point in the draft Black Cedric Ogbuehi Jerseys , especially if one of the premier defenders slid and that’s exactly what happened with Allen.“Good” Josh Allen, as I will refer to him for now, was one of the best pass rushers and defenders in the SEC last season. Allen played with both his hand on the ground as an edge rusher and also standing up and floating around like a linebacker, to the point where most considered Allen the perfect fit as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but he’s also drawn comparisons to Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.For the Jaguars, I’m not sure how Allen would fit in their 4-3 look. He could line up as a defensive end on passing plays and perhaps play outside linebacker on run downs. With the addition of Dom Capers as an adviser, maybe the Jaguars start to shift to some 3-4 looks on their defensive front.Quick Scouting Report from Filip Prus (@JaxonFil):After arriving on campus at Kentucky at 208 pounds and not many offers as an over-looked recruit, Allen has become a self-made prospect Cedric Ogbuehi Jerseys 2019 , working his way to becoming one of the most fearsome and productive pass rushers in the SEC. Allen is yolked with bulging biceps and a barrel chest and has worked tirelessly in the weight room to get to 6’5” 260lbs this past year, allowing him to rack up 17 sacks. Allen wins with an explosive first step that he pairs with ethereal closing speed and has registered a 9.84 RAS as a DE. Allen plays with a tireless motor and doesn’t come off the field, likely factoring in as the Jaguars’ starting SAM in base downs and moving to edge rusher in pass rush situations. Much like Ngakoue, Allen has a knack for forcing fumbles and gives the Jaguars a ton of versatility on defense moving forward.Overall, the Jaguars are getting an elite athlete at a premium position and an exceptional person off the field. Allen is married with one son and would participate in Special Olympics events after practice and volunteer at the Indian Summer Camp for children’s cancer survivors. Allen’s non-sport talent is cooking and he plans on being a sports analyst after his football career. In my conversations, I have heard glowing reviews of Allen’s character and Jacksonville seems to be getting a tremendous culture guy. Several opposing SEC tackles have listed Allen as the toughest player they’ve ever gone up against, and Lance Zierlein said earlier on NFL Network that a colleague of his who is Director of Analytics for an NFL team whose analytics had Aaron Donald as the best player in his draft have Allen pegged as being the best prospect in this class.
