The Jacksonville Jaguars have officially made the decision to provide running back Maurice Jones-Drew the opportunity to shop around the free agency market this offseason.

During the year, there were reports that Maurice Jones-Drew wanted out of Jacksonville, but the Jaguars and GM David Caldwell never pulled the trigger to trading MJD. Now that the season is entirely over for Jacksonville, the Jaguars have committed to letting Jones-Drew hit free agency and find a new team.

When asked about the decision, Jaguars’ GM David Caldwell seemed to not be energized at all in bringing back the team’s most proven offensive weapon.

“I think he’ll leave that up to his representation in terms of finding him the best value for his deal,” general manager David Caldwell said Tuesday, per ESPN. “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.

“It’s our right to decide if we want to match it and bring him back.”

Getting right down to it, if a general manager is willing to allow a player with MJD’s caliber to hit free agency, then all arrows point to the Jacksonville Jaguars no longer being interested in Maurice Jones-Drew’s services.

Why are the Jacksonville Jaguars possibly turning away?

This past year has not been very nice to MJD. During the 2013-14 NFL season, Jones-Drew rushed for only 803 yards with 5 touchdowns via 234 attempts.

The two statistics that pop out right away is Jones-Drew’s average per run being at a measly 3.4 yards per carry and his touchdowns breaking the goal line only five times this year. These two statistics marks the worst average and lowest touchdown output Maurice Jones-Drew ever had in his entire career.

  1. If Jacksonville doesn’t want him, I’m sure there’s plenty of teams in the league that do.

    I mean, think about it.

    If you had to wake up and play every Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars, would you be motivated?

      Agreed, that and the fact that MJD doesn’t really get along with team owner Shahid Khan. It’s hard to play for a team when you know the owner doesn’t really have your best interest at heart.
