Former Jacksonville Jaguars great Maurice Jones-Drew will retire as a member of the Jaguars next Tuesday, according to the team. A ceremony will be held at EverBank Field on Tuesday, April 28th at 11am.

Jones-Drew retired from the NFL last month after a nine-year career in which he gained a total of 11,111 yards and 79 touchdowns. He said his future plans include coming back to Jacksonville in time to watch some OTA practices and to eventually get into broadcasting.
