Jacksonville Jaguars hint MJD won’t be back, add another RB


The Jacksonville Jaguars may have a running back wearing the number 32 on his jersey next season, but it’s highly unlikely that it will be Maurice Jones-Drew.

Gerhart, 26, rushed for 1,305 yards and five touchdowns in his four seasons in Minnesota as Adrian Peterson’s back-up. In 2013, the 2009 Heisman runner-up averaged 7.4 yards per carry–production the Jaguars could use on offense.

NFL Network’s fantasy guru, Michael Fabiano, was a little more brunt about the situation with Jones-Drew and the role that Toby Gerhart will likely have in the Jaguars’ offense.

Gerhart’s contract is for three years and worth up to $10.5 million with $4.5 million in guaranteed money. He should have an opportunity to play significantly more with the Jaguars than he did in Minnesota, especially with the release of Justin Forsett Tuesday morning.
