Leonard Fournette was born and raised in Louisiana. He played college football at LSU, and was then drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars. After his time in Jacksonville, he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and was a member of that franchise until the end of the 2022.

If there's one thing Fournette has a lot of experience with in his life, it's living and playing football in warm weather. He's not exactly accustomed to living in colder climates, a fact that made his reaction to the weather in Buffalo even more hilarious.

Leonard Fournette Arrives in Buffalo; Reacts to Cold Weather in Buffalo

Earlier this week, Fournette was signed to the practice squad of the Buffalo Bills. Fournette had been without a job to start the 2023 campaign, and with the Bills losing Damien Harris to injury, an opportunity presented itself for Fournette to join a contending team midseason.

Fournette practiced for the first time as a member of the Bills on Wednesday. The six-year NFL veteran happened to arrive in Upstate New York right as the weather began to turn cold, and had this to say about the climate in our area:

I've heard cold weather be described countless different ways, but that's the first time I've ever seen it phrased quite like that. I'll definitely be borrowing that to use in future conversations.

Fournette was a consensus All-American in 2015, and was named to the First Team All-SEC as a member of the LSU football team. He was drafted fourth overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2017 NFL Draft, and played three seasons with the team.

He was waived by Jacksonville in the summer of 2020, and was signed by Tampa Bay one month later. He played a crucial role in the Buccaneers' run to Super Bowl LV, which they eventually won, beating Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City.
