Firstly, Head coach Doug Marrone told reporters that the move was strictly related to what he has seen on the field from Fournette. During training camp and was not about any issues in the locker room, for instance.

“At the end of the day, we feel … the skill sets of the guys that we have [can replace Fournette], and really that’s what led to the decision,” Marrone said. “And it’s been something that we’ve done it with every single position we’ve been looking at. We’ve done cutups, we’ve done tapes, we’ve gone back, we’ve looked at everything, what we’ve tried to get done. So it’s not just the running back position; it’s all positions.

“And I wanted to make sure we had the best look of, hey, what’s going on right now? That’s the best indication of what we’re going to be able to get when we start this season. I just feel that was the best — is what’s best for our team.”

The 25-year-old running back was the first draft pick made by Tom Coughlin. The team’s former executive vice president of football operations.
