The Buccaneers have officially cut ties with running back Lenoard Fournette.

Tampa Bay released the running back after the start of the new league year at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Fournette was not released with a post-June 1 designation to spread out the cap hit.

In 2022, Fournette recorded 668 yards on 189 carries, averaging just 3.5 yards per attempt. He also caught 73 passes for 523 yards with three touchdowns, bringing him up to 1,191 yards from scrimmage on the season.

Fournette, 28, will now seek his third NFL franchise. The No. 4 overall pick of the 2017 draft, Fournette has twice rushed for 1,000 yards in his career.
