The Jacksonville Jaguars should forget about Maurice Jones-Drew

Jones-Drew has been a powerhouse in “The River City.”

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley remains uncertain if Maurice Jones-Drew will play Sunday versus the Tennessee Titans in Jacksonville.

Although “improved with rehab,” the 28-year-old Jones-Drew continues to battle a balky hamstring.

Jones-Drew, who has been competing with a surgically repaired foot, is in the final year of a $31 million deal.

Earning $4.95 million this autumn, the former Bruin’s rushed 208 times for 719 yards and five touchdowns over 13 games.

A three-time All-Pro who captured the 2011 NFL rushing crown, Jones-Drew has also caught 34 balls for 239 yards.

The Jaguars are 4-10 and fielding the league’s most inept offense.

For the betterment of all parties involved, the Jaguars should shelve Jones-Drew and use youngster Jordan Todman.

Jacksonville’s long removed from playoff contention and the organization needs to evaluate their personnel against Tennessee and Indianapolis.

Capable of completing the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds, Jones-Drew will bolt as a free agent in the spring.

Hence, the Jaguars must forget about Maurice Jones-Drew, regroup, and concentrate on finding their future running back.
