Fournette and the NFL Players Association expected to file grievance appeal after Jaguars void contract guarantees 

Late Sunday, Dec. 31, the Jacksonville Jaguars notified running back Leonard Fournette they were voiding the remaining salary guarantees in the fourth overall pick’s four-year rookie contract, according to an Associated Press report.

The Jaguars said Fournette’s one-game suspension last month, after leaving the bench and getting into a fight with Buffalo Bills defensive end Shawn Lawson Nov. 25, voided his remaining guarantees. The decision was confirmed Monday by coach Doug Marrone.

The team’s decision would cost Fournette $7.1 million of his remaining salary over the next two years.
