The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that Leonard Fournette will be changing his number to '7' for the upcoming season which is the jersey number that he wore during his days at LSU.

Buccaneers running back Leonard Fournette has taken on a few nicknames since joining Tampa Bay before the 2020 season. He was 'Playoff Lenny' due to his production in the postseason and then after the Bucs took home the ultimate prize, Fournette became 'Lombardi Lenny.'

Now, he's adding another: 'Seven.'

In taking advantage of the new relaxed rules announced by the NFL last week regarding which numbers certain positions can wear, Fournette is officially changing his number to '7' and you can address him by the numerical moniker going forward.

Fournette wore seven back in college at LSU. It was his way of representing where he's from in New Orleans: the seventh ward.

"That's where I'm born and raised," said Fournette. "That's just me. That's what I represent. I'm so big on giving back to where I'm from and it really represents how special that place is to me. I'm just grateful.
