Jaguars would trade Jones-Drew, at the right price

Jaguars G.M. David Caldwell has said he won’t trade running back Maurice Jones-Drew.  It’s possible that the rest of that statement should be “for a bowl of soup and an ugly hat.”

Per a league source, a deal would indeed be done, at the right price.

In many respects, that’s obvious.  Any player could, in theory, be traded if a big enough package is offered.

For Jones-Drew, it’s unclear what the Jaguars would want.  But two weeks and two days remain before the trade deadline; if injury or ineffectiveness prompts a contender to take a chance on Jones-Drew in the hopes of improving their roster for a playoff run, the deal could go down.

Either way, it’s hard to envision Jones-Drew returning to Jacksonville in 2014, unless he has no other viable options.  He has been the face of the franchise for the last few years, but the franchise is in dire need of a facelift.  And every other type of cosmetic and corrective surgery imaginable.

    Who would give up a lot for a back past his prime?

    Conditional 7th round pick at best.

    I’m sure some team will trade Tebow for MJD…….

    Guy in the twilight of his career whose contract is up at the end of the season. Take whatever you can get.

    Jones-Drew has plenty left in the tank. THIS is the trade Indy should’ve made.

    They’d be lucky to get a 4th round pick for a guy with that much tread on his tires averaging a horrible 2.8 YPC. Jones-Drew was a very good player but those days look over

    Pull the trigger Caldwell. Mighty MJD deserves a shot. He has been nothing short of amazing for the team but he deserves a chance with a contender and some playoff games. He can still contribute but the jags have obviously nothing going offensively and now no starting tackles left.

    This trade is two or three years too late.

    An aging back past his prime coming off a lisfranc injury? Realistically the right price is about a 5th round pick, if you can find a playoff team with injuries at running back and a dire need.

    Only team that’d make sense is Miami.

    Didn’t the Jags change to a zone blocking scheme this year? Zone blocking is not for everyone.

    Jeff Ireland on line one.

    I remember that MJD talked about the issues with cartilage in his knee in an interview several years ago. When he held out last year, I thought he realized that his career was effectively over, and it was his last possible chance to get paid.

    He isn’t worth a 7th in 2020 at this point. Time for him to retire gracefully.

    What about a bowl of soup and a good-looking hat?

  16. northshorejag says: Oct 13, 2013 5:53 PM

    Face of the franchise for the last few years?

    You just can’t help it can you?

    this team is a disaster

  18. cuda1234 says: Oct 13, 2013 9:04 PM

    He’ll always be Fred Taylor’s backup.

    “I remember that MJD talked about the issues with cartilage in his knee in an interview several years ago. When he held out last year, I thought he realized that his career was effectively over”

    you do realize that he led the league in rushing the following year?

    Should the this team bring in VINCE YOUNG??? He has matured and he’s ready to go….
    He has shown everyone that he is NOT a cancer in the locker room and that he is a hard worker (e.g. Green Bay Packers)… Vince is a 6′-5″ mobile quarterback with talent and playoff experience…. He is hungry, motivated and determined to continue playing the game that he love so much, NFL FOOTBALL…
    Vince is a LOW risk-HIGH reward type of guy… This would be a wise move for any GM/Head Coach looking to upgrade their qb pool….
