Maurice Jones-Drew free agent: Jacksonville Jaguars moving on without Jones-Drew

See also

Maurice Jones-Drew is a free agent now. The Jacksonville Jaguars won't be bringing back Maurice Jones-Drew for another season, making him available to every other team in the NFL. According to a report from ESPN on Tuesday (Dec. 31), the team is apparently waiting to see what other teams offer him before trying to potentially re-sign him. It's not exactly a flattering move to the running back and will certainly work against the team retaining his services.

When talking about the running back hitting free agency, Jaguars general manager David Caldwell had a lot to say about it. He was quoted as stating, "I'm not pessimistic at all about it. I think he's earned the right to go to free agency. He's been a great player in this organization and he's had a great career and I think he's earned the right to go see what his value and his market is."

Letting Maurice Jones-Drew become a free agent could leave a hole at the running back position, but the team has some other options that could get more playing time in the 2014 NFL season. There is also the potential that the team could find one in the 2014 NFL Draft, especially since they will select early in each round. The team has the No. 3 overall selection as well, guaranteeing a really good player coming in at least the first round.

During the 2013 NFL season, Jones-Drew ran for 803 yards and five touchdowns, but his 3.4 yards per carry was the worst of his career.
