Jones-DrewA late-season surge might save the Jaguars from finishing with the worst record in the NFL, but it?s hard to ignore how far Jones-Drew?s play has fallen this season.

Through 12 games, the eighth-year pro is averaging a startling 3.2 yards per carry. Whether it?s Jones-Drew?s body of work ? his 1,764 career carries is fifth-most among active players ? or last season?s Lisfranc injury that?s the cause, it?s clear his best days are behind him.

Moving on after this season seems like the best option for both sides. Jones-Drew can make a last gasp at contributing to a contender, and the Jaguars get more flexibility to rebuild.
