Leonard Fournette has been the Tampa Bay Buccaneers starter the last several seasons. He re-signed with the team in the off-season.

Fournette signed a three-year, $21 million deal with the Buccaneers. He is expected to be the projected starter going into the season.

Rachaad White will challenge Fournette for the starting job. The Buccaneers’ third-round draft pick believes that he can compete for a starting role during the upcoming season.

“My expectation is I’m going in there competing,” White said to CBS Sports Radio host Jim Rome, the host of The Jim Rome Show. “I want to be the starting running back.”

White previously played college football with the Arizona State Sun Devils. He spent the last two seasons with the Sun Devils.

Before transferring to the Sun Devils, he spent one season at Nebraska-Kearny in 2017 and spent two seasons at Mt. San Antonio College.

In his final college season, White had 1,000 rushing yards. He also had 15 rushing touchdowns.

Also, he had 43 receptions for 456 yards and one touchdown.

White could fill in the role that Ronald Jones II previously had with the Buccaneers at least initially. In the off-season, Jones II received a one-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Despite being the team’s starter the last two seasons, Fournette has missed six games due to hamstring and ankle injuries.
