Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette might be in trouble with the NFL after getting into it with a fan last Thursday.

“I will beat your ass,” Fournette tells the unidentified person in the stands during a short verbal exchange in a video released Monday morning by TMZ. It’s not clear what caused the dustup between the electric running back and somebody in the stands during the Jaguars loss to the Tennessee Titans(RELATED: Here Are The Best Moments Of Week 14 Of The NFL Season)

What the hell is Fournette thinking? Seriously, what could possibly be going through his mind in order to get into a spat with a fan? They’re in the stands, and he’s a professional athlete. I don’t care what the fan is saying to him. I don’t care if he’s throwing every insult they can think of his way.

Fournette needs to be smart enough to just walk the hell away. It’s not difficult. Instead, he chose to engage with the unidentified person.

You know who really isn’t going to like this video? A man by the name of Roger Goodell, who also happens to be running the entire league.

If I had to guess, Goodell just isn’t going to let this incident go unaddressed now that there’s a video of it out on the internet.

Have fun paying that fine, Mr. Fournette!
