Entering the final year of a $31 million deal, Jones-Drew is recovering from a surgically repaired foot.
Scheduled to earn $4.95 million in 2013, the three-time All-Pro will be helped in the backfield by rookie 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.
Destined to be overworked by Bradley, the 2011 NFL rushing champion should focus, dominate, and seek greener pastures as a free agent next spring.
Although being “back to normal again,” Jones-Drew will hardly handle the pigskin in a pointless game against Miami.
Regardless, after an exhausting autumn, expect Maurice Jones-Drew to bolt from “The Bold New City of the South.”by
