Maurice Jones-Drew showed running backs tend to have short careers

Maurice Jones-Drew showed running backs tend to have short careers

Maurice Jones-Drew’s retirement at age 29 is another example that running backs in the NFL tend to have short careers. The pounding they take tends to take its toll as it did with Jones-Drew. Although he played for nine years – eight with the Jaguars – he virtually had a six year career before he suffered a Lisfranc injury in the sixth game of the 2012 season in Oakland and he was never the same. Even the fact Jones-Drew spent his first three years splitting time with Fred Taylor didn’t extend his career. He carried 166, 167 and 197 in those three years. read more

Jaguars WR Marqise Lee files lawsuit against Lloyd's of London

Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee has filed a lawsuit in district court in California against Lloyd's of London for denying an insurance claim on a policy he took out in his final year at USC in 2013. Lee paid $94,000 to cover him if he fell in the draft and got a contract worth less than $9.6 million. He then suffered a knee injury at Arizona State two weeks later that apparently hampered him and he fell to the second round before being taken as the 39th overall pick by the Jaguars last May. read more

Former Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew retiring after 9 NFL seasons

Maurice Jones-Drew, the Jaguars’ career record-holder in touchdowns, announced his retirement Friday, a few weeks shy of his 30th birthday.

Jones-Drew rushed 1,847 times for 8,167 yards, totals that rank 46th and 45th, respectively, in league history.

Jones-Drew gave Jaguars personality, best years of his life

  Whatever your memories are of Maurice Jones-Drew’s NFL career with the Jaguars – the bulldozing block in 2010 on the San Diego Chargers’ Shawne Merriman, plowing through eventual Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts for 166 yards in 2006 – he left as possibly the most unforgettable player to ever wear the black and teal. read more

Ron Jaworski wouldn't take Jameis Winston with first pick in the draft

Former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski isn’t sold on quarterback Jameis Winston being the first pick in the draft. “I’ve studied a lot of him, I think Jameis Winston has a big upside in the NFL, but there are some flaws to his game,’’ the ESPN analyst said during an appearance on “Mike and Mike. “Quite honestly, I would not take him at that No. 1 pick,’’ he said. Jaworski said he’s not taking his off-the-field problems into account. read more

Report has Jets willing to trade Marcus Mariota to Eagles if he falls to sixth pick

The conventional wisdom is that if Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly wants to reunite with Marcus Mariota, he has to trade above the New York Jets, who are in the sixth spot. Mariota could fall to the sixth spot if Tennessee doesn’t take him in the second spot because the next three teams, Jaguars, Raiders and Redskins, aren’t looking for a quarterback. The Jets, though, need a quarterback and the speculation is that they will take Mariota if he’s there. read more

Matt Cassel grabs a seat in Buffalo on the NFL quarterback Merry-Go-Round

Matt Cassel grabs a seat in Buffalo on the NFL quarterback Merry-Go-Round

Matt Cassel is likely going to get at least one more chance to start in the NFL because he just grabbed a seat on the NFL’s quarterback Merry-Go-Round. The Buffalo Bills made a trade with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday to get Cassel and presumably make him the starter for this season. That leaves five teams with unsettled quarterback situations – the Jets, Titans, Texans, Bears and Eagles – if, as expected, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers make Jameis Winston the top pick in the draft. read more

NFL will move part of the draft outdoors to make it more of a spectacle

The NFL apparently feels the NFL draft is now too big to be held totally indoors. The draft is moving to Chicago this year and will be held not only in Auditorium Theater but at Grant Park from April 30 to May 2 according to ESPN. ESPN and the NFL Networks will have sets both in the theater and at Grant Park where the 32 team tables will be situated. Teams will communicate with officials from those tables to relay their picks which, for the first two nights, will be communicated across the red carpet on Michigan Avenue to the theater on the other side of the street. read more
