Buccaneers reportedly plan to release RB Leonard Fournette on March 15

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers reportedly plan to move on from veteran running back Leonard Fournette, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The 28-year-old rusher spent the past three seasons with the Buccaneers after he played his first three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The decision to release Fournette before June 1 will save the Buccaneers around $3.47 million but incur a dead cap of $5 million, per Over the Cap. The move also paves the way for second-year running back Rachaad White to take on a larger offensive role in 2023.
