Maurice Jones-Drew Trade Rumors Affecting Entire NFL

No one knows when the Maurice Jones-Drew saga will end and if he has played his last game as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Because of the uncertainty, reporters and fans are beginning to ask if Jones-Drew is a fit for their own team.

Jones-Drew's name has been connected to the Detroit Lions, Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets recently. The latter is definitely more a case of speculation that fact.

Sure, he'd raise the Jets' fantasy-football profile (MJD himself is an avid fantasy player), but the trade would make no sense on several levels. They have needs more pressing than running back. They couldn't squeeze another long-term contract under the cap. He's 27 years old, meaning he's probably a year or two away from the start of his decline. And, lastly, the Jets really like Shonn Greene.

The Jaguars will take the field again on Thursday without their starting running back.
