    Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette was arrested for speeding and knowingly driving with a suspended license, according to Jacksonville jail records obtained by Ryan Nelson of CBS47 Jacksonville.

    Video of Fournette being booked at the Duval County jail has also emerged.

    The Jaguars have since issued a statement acknowledging the developing situation.

    "The Jacksonville Jaguars are aware of the situation involving running back Leonard Fournette and are continuing to gather more information," the team said in a statement obtained by ESPN's Michael DiRocco. "No further comment will be provided at this time."

    Fournette, a first-round draft pick in 2017, has been on rocky ground with the Jaguars since his 1,000-yard rookie season. He was suspended one week in November for inciting a fight during a game, which led to the team voiding $7 million in contract guarantees, and threatened to fight a fan during a blowout loss in December.

    Executive vice president Tom Coughlin called he and teammate T.J. Yeldon "disrespectful" and "selfish" for their conduct while sitting on the bench during a late-season game.

    However, Coughlin expressed "full confidence" in the 24-year-old during a press conference in March.

    "He had an outstanding year (as a rookie); he had a very disappointing year (last season). We want him to be a great player and I think he's in the same mindset," Coughlin said.

    a baseball player is getting ready to hit the ball: Arguably the biggest draft bust in NFL history made what ESPN's John Clayton referred to as "a big impression" at the 2007 combine, and Clayton also wrote: "Russell is going to be a hard talent to pass up. Few quarterbacks have entered any draft with this type of arm strength." As Sports Illustrated pointed out, ESPN personality Todd McShay added to the hype: "I can't remember being in such awe of a quarterback in my decade of attending combines and pro days. Russell's passing session was the most impressive of all the pro days I've been to." Russell made 25 starts and 31 appearances over three seasons for the Oakland Raiders, the franchise that drafted him first overall in 2007. He never caught on with a different team.?
