Jaguars legend Maurice Jones-Drew joins NFL Network


Maurice Jones-Drew is inarguably the greatest running back in the brief history of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jones-Drew retired this past March after nine seasons in the NFL. In eight years with the Jags and then spending last season with the Oakland Raiders he compiled career totals of 8,167 rushing yards and 81 total touchdowns.

MJD made three Pro Bowls and he currently holds the franchise record for single-season rushing yards (1,606 in 2011) and total touchdowns. In his new role, Maurice Jones-Drew will primarily appear on NFL Now, but he’ll also be an analyst for NFL Network shows NFL Fantasy Live and the listicle in television form that is  The Top 100 Players.

Paul M. Banks owns, operates and writes The Sports, which is part of the FOX Sports Engage Network.Banks, a former writer for the Washington Times, currently contributes to the Chicago Tribune RedEye edition. He also appears regularly on numerous talk radio stations all across the country. Catch his Tuesdays on KOZN 1620 The Zone.

    Nice article, I love the structure and idea. Of course, I was a biology major and love this kind of stuff. I also love me some MJD, but he is moving down to the second-tier of RBs in 2011 (hint at my RB rankings, haha)!

  2. I would take a chance with MJD as early as pick 5. All you have to do is handcuff him with Rashad Jennings. Maybe I’d take McCoy in a PPR, but I expect MJD’s rushing TDs to go up this year.

    I don’t know about that Justin, big risk for your first round pick. Jennings won’t be an easy handcuff either, he will be drafted somewhat decent I would think. That’s why we need the preseason, so we can see how that surgically repaired knee is.
