Will Jones-Drew be traded from Jaguars?

According to ESPN, running back Maurice Jones-Drew is open to being traded from the Jacksonville Jaguars after it appears he won’t get the contract he’s looking for. Comments made by the team’s owner, Shad Khan, didn’t help matters, either. In an interview with the Florida Times-Union, Khan said, “Train is leaving the station; Run, get on it.”

The comments that seemed to anger Jones-Drew were told to Yahoo! Sports last week in an interview. Khan said, “He’s not here, and that’s his decision. Believe me, it’s not a great concern. You hope for the best, and you plan for the worst. Our goals for the season don’t change, and if he isn’t here, he isn’t here. I don’t control it. It’s his choice.” There are two years left on Jones-Drew’s contract with Jacksonville, which he signed in 2009 for a five-year, $31 million price tag.

Jones-Drew is an asset to the team, and without him, the Jaguars could be in trouble. He is the NFL’s rushing leader – last season, his 1,606 rushing yards made up a huge 82 percent of the team’s total rushing yards. His 11 touchdowns were 52 percent of Jacksonville’s offensive touchdowns. According to the Bleacher Report, the only power Jones-Drew has in this situation is to sit the season out – otherwise, his chances of being traded are slim. With two years left on his contract, the team won’t find value in a trade and Jones-Drew won’t sit out for that long. What are your thoughts on the situation? Let’s hear your opinion!
