“Realistic Possibility” Maurice Jones-Drew Is Back In Jacksonville Next Season

Jaguars GM David Caldwell mentioned in a radio interview that there’s a “realistic possibility” of RB Maurice Jones-Drew returning to Jacksonville next season.

It’s a realistic possibility,” said Caldwell, via 1010 XL in Jacksonville. “He’s been great this year, a real nice surprise as far as his approach.

Jones-Drew, 28, is in the final year of contract and is set to become an unrestricted free agent following the season. Heading into 2013 season, it appeared as though as this would be MJD’s finally year with the Jaguars, but he has looked much better than many expected him too.

In 11 games, Jones-Drew has totaled 539 yards rushing, five touchdowns and another 215 yards receiving. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 22 running back in the league. While these numbers aren’t all that staggering, it’s worth considering that Jones-Drew has done this some of the worst quarterback play in the league, and after the Jaguars traded their best offensive lineman.

We have Jones-Drew currently listed as the No. 39 player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.

    As Jags fan, yeah we could draft a RB and that’d be exciting but behind a good offensive line MJD can carry your football team.
