Maurice Jones-Drew - RB - Jaguars
Maurice Jones-Drew told NFL.com that he's confident "things are going to work out" in regards to his training-camp holdout and recommended fantasy owners draft him with the No. 1 overall pick.Jones-Drew, a fantasy aficionado, also said "handcuffing" him with Rashad Jennings would be a good idea. Jones-Drew's statement doesn't really tell us much, although we suppose it would seem to indicate he'll be playing football this year. We suspect it will be with the Jaguars, as opposed to another team after a trade. Considering the poor track record of training-camp holdouts who report just before Week 1, we'd still be gunshy about MJD before the third round.

Is MoJo finally coming to his senses?? If so, what a sigh of relief. I could care less about the fantasy end of the spectrum, I'm just happy to see that he's coming back to honor the remains of his contract, well at least this years. Heck, if he plays well enough & it's well-deserved, I'm ALL IN to keep him a Jag for life next offseason. He will have more leverage then & by that time, who knows what to expect.
Although nothing is in stone just yet, this article is a start & just the thought of having two legitimate starting RB's in our backfield while Owens continues to shine in the preseason, I'm expecting no less than the #1 Rushing Offense. Follow that with a much-improved Gabbert & a revamped WR corps, a top-notch defense when all the pieces are together & clicking, WOWW this season is looking more & more SPECIAL...
Here's to MoJo on the verge of being sane once again!!
