Former standout running back Leonard Fournette has been patiently waiting for another shot in the NFL, and nine weeks into the season, the Buffalo Bills finally gave him a call.
Fournette played his college football at LSU, and then was drafted into the NFL by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Following a couple of respectable years, he then took his talents to Tampa Bay to play for the Buccaneers from 2020 to 2022, winning a Super Bowl with Tom Brady in 2021.
All of that just to say that Fournette has played a majority of his career in warmer climates. So when he found out he was joining the Bills up in Buffalo, New York, he was excited, but wasn’t exactly prepared for the brutal cold that comes with living in upstate New York.
The talented running back has only started practicing with the Bills, and he’s already struggling to get used to the colder climate. Fournette sent out a post on X to perfectly describe the harsh winter weather that’s common in Buffalo:
“No lie Buffalo (is) colder than a penguin ass out here lord…”
Media members that follow and cover the team noticed that Fournette had changed up his practice gear after he initially braved the cold.
Only two days after those pictures of above of “Lenny Shorty Shorts” were posted, the new Bills running back decided to add a couple of layers underneath his practice uniform, while still sporting his short shorts over the top:
