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

Through 12 games, the eighth-year pro is averaging a startling 3.2 yards per carry. Whether its Jones-Drews body of work his 1,764 career carries is fifth-most among active players or last seasons Lisfranc injury thats the cause, its 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.
