The Jacksonville Jaguars should trade Maurice Jones-Drew
The Jaguars are going nowhere fast and for a few seasons to come it seems. Why not one of their more valuable players in MJD to build for the future?
It gives him a chance to win some games this season, and gives the Jaguars the chance to rebuild their franchise, since they are currently winless.
There are a few teams in the league that could really used the services of MJD, including the Texans with their uncertain health issues at the running back position. The Cowboys really need some depth at the running back position because DeMarco Murray’s heath is a big factor in the Cowboys’ success for the remainder of the season.
This year MJD has rushed for 391 yards (two touchdowns) on 122 carries.
Another team that could use the services of MJD could be the New York Giants, because I don’t see any of their current backs making a big difference in their season. Sadly the Giants (they are playing Peyton Hillis) are just two games back in their division and they have just two wins this season with the likes of Hillis and Brandon Jacobs carrying the ball, and those are two backs that have seen their better days already.
