With Jones-Drew entering the final year of a $31 million deal, the fuzz concluded there was insufficient evidence to build a case against the three-time All-Pro.
Now, rather than worrying about litigation, the 28-year-old Jones-Drew can concentrate on recovering form his surgically repaired foot.
The 2011 NFL rushing champion who established Jacksonville’s record for most yards that season with 1,606, Jones-Drew will be helped in the backfield this autumn by Denard Robinson.
Taking into account Jacksonville’s 2-14 record in the AFC South and primarily atrocious 53-man roster, new head coach Gus Bradley will certainly rely on the legs of Jones-Drew and Robinson.
Destined to be overworked by Bradley, Jones-Drew should focus, dominate, and seek greener pastures as a free agent next spring.
Needing a fresh start, expect Maurice Jones-Drew to soon bolt from “The Bold New City of the South.”by
