Jones-Drew [2]A 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.
