Raiders get official word on 2015 compensatory picks

Gene Frenette: Jaguars need to find players with Maurice Jones-Drew's intensity

If the Jaguars are going to truly make a turnaround under coach Gus Bradley in 2015, one thing they could use is a Maurice Jones-Drew type, a player whose competitive fire is as big as his production. Jones-Drew’s decision to retire from the NFL Thursday only served as a reminder that the Jaguars’ locker room lacks an omnipresent, take-charge leader, a role they certainly hope quarterback Blake Bortles assumes in the near future. read more

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

Twitter Reactions to Maurice Jones-Drew retirement

Maurice Jones-Drew only managed to have one season with the Oakland Raiders and we will be perfectly honest here, it wasn't a good one. Forget about the way his career finished though, MJD was without a doubt one of the most exciting running backs to grace an NFL field over the past decade. He is widely thought of as an excellent teammate and was wildly entertaining both to watch on the field and to listen to off of it. His love of fantasy football has helped catapult the game to a new level of popularity and that was before even taking to the next stage of his life where he almost...
